SMP Spotlight

Students on SMP Presentation Day

Jeremy Young, "Latter-Day Lafayettes: The France-America Society, 1911-1989,” 2006.

Founded in New York in 1911, the France-America Society was committed to the friendship of France and the United States, and attracted elite supporters from both countries; members believed that France and the U.S. should always be allies, and that individual Franco-American friendships would outlast any political differences. An impressive array of primary source material, as well as oral histories with surviving members of the Society, undergird this project.
