Stoddard's warnings about what he saw as unwise U.S. investments in European bonds without, as he saw it, sufficient assurances that the Europeans would "play ball" and follow American economic models. Stoddard was known for his books on what he saw as the "dangers" posed by "colored" peoples to "white " civilization.
Born in Brookline, Mass in 1883, Stoddard received his PhD in History from Harvard in 1914 and went on to write numerous books on current affairs and history. He died in 1950.
