Assistant Secretary of State (1909-1913)

Assistant Secretary of State (1909-1913)

Huntington Wilson served as Assistant Secretary of State under Philander C. Knox, who was frequently absent and relied heavily on Wilson to maintain the daily functions of the State Department. While there, he completely reorganized the State Department in a more logical manner, created an order of precedence for the government and diplomatic corps, and worked with various members of the diplomatic corps to ensure the best image and relations for the United States.

The image above is a close up of the first Diplomatic Class of 1909 with Huntington Wilson at center.
