This journal was later renamed the Journal of International Relations, which in turn was merged with Foreign Affairs. Born in Geneseo, New York, he was the brother of the botanist Albert Francis Blakeslee. Having graduated from Wesleyan University (A. B.1893, A. M. 1897 ) , George Blakeslee then studied at Leipzig University and Oxford University between 1901 and 1903. He received his Ph. D. From Harvard University in 1903.

The future US president donated $50,000 to his alma mater, Stanford University, to create a repository for the “documentary history bearing on the war." Hoover recruited scholars to develop a robust collecting program to document the causes and consequences of political conflict with the ultimate goal of promoting peace. Today, the Library & Archives that bear Hoover’s name boast nearly one million volumes and more than six thousand archival collections—in sixty-nine languages from more than one hundred fifty countries—pertaining to war, revolution, and peace in the twentieth and twenty-first centuries. The Institution's resources support a vibrant international community of scholars and a broad public interested in the meaning and role of history." (from the Hoover Inst.

" he first went to China in 1859 as a tea-taster for a German merchant house (having been sent to Germany to learn the language at the age of sixteen) , and his views on missionaries and their influence in China, though more tactfully expressed than those of Reginald Johnston a generation later, were far from positive. All agree that he was fluent in Chinese, both spoken and written, but, again frustratingly, there is no detail on how he became so. It is known that he prospered as a merchant, but he may, one suspects, never have become famous as a Western pioneer in China or as writer if he had not married Alicia: the dedication of his first book, Through the Yang-tse Gorges, Or, Trade and Travel in Western China (1888) , reads: ‘To my wife, to whose loving aid and encouragement this small literary venture owes its execution, I dedicate this work’."

"William Woodville Rockhill (May 1, 1854 – December 8, 1914) was a United States diplomat, best known as the author of the U. S.' s Open Door Policy for China and as the first American to learn to speak Tibetan." "With the outbreak of the Boxer Rebellion, U. S. Secretary of State John Hay, who knew little of the Far East, turned to Rockhill for guidance. As such, Rockhill drafted a memorandum that spelled out the famous Open Door Policy towards China; this memorandum was circulated to Russia, Britain, Germany, France, Japan, and Italy and in March 1900, Secretary Hay announced that all the Great Powers had signed off on the Open Door Policy. Rockhill was then despatched as President McKinley's special envoy, where he represented the U. S. In the Conference of Ministers that followed the ending of the Boxer Rebellion. During the negotiations surrounding the Boxer Protocol, Rockhill argued against full war reparations, instead encouraging the Great Powers to settle for a lump sum of $333 million in reparations to be divided amongst the Powers in proportion to their expenses incurred in intervening in China.
