Evolution of Seward's Mexican Policy, West Virginia University Studies in American History, Series 1, Diplomatic History, Nos. 4, 5, and 6.

Morgantown, VA: West Virginia University, Department of History and Political Science, 1909. Presumed first edition/first printing. Wraps. [2], 88, [2] p. Footnotes. When James Morton Callahan joined the faculty at West Virginia University in the fall of 1902, he did so as associate professor of European history, a position which more accurately reflected the needs of the institution than the academic preparation of the historian himself. Callahan, with a doctorate earned in 1897 from the highly acclaimed graduate program at Johns Hopkins University, was, at age thirty-seven, already well published with four major books in print. In his diplomatic studies, his accessibility while at Johns Hopkins to Washington, D.C., with the invaluable and unused materials of the U.S. State Department, propelled him into early prominence as a scholar whose work was especially well grounded in primary sources. William Henry Seward (May 16, 1801 October 10, 1872) was United States Secretary of State from 1861 to 1869, and earlier served as Governor of New York and United States Senator. He was a dominant figure in the Republican Party in its formative years. Condition: Fair. No dust jacket. Cover has some wear, soiling, and fading. Front cover torn and chipped.
