Transcription

Henry Cabot Lodge was from one of Massachusetts's most distinguished families. In fact, one of his ancestors had been one of the first senators from Massachusetts, and Henry Cabot Lodge was elected to the United States Senate at the end of the 19th century. He proposed a bill to give the federal government the power to stop lynching and to punish lynch mobs; it didn't pass. And he was a close ally of President Theodore Roosevelt. In 1916, he defeated John Fitzgerald in a rather hotly contested race for the United States Senate seat, which Lodge retained. Then in 1918, 1919, Lodge blocked the American admission or America's joining of the League of Nations, squelching the proposal in President Wilson's Treaty of Versailles that would have had the United States join the League. Not because Lodge was an isolationist, in fact he was one of the great internationalists, seeing that the United States had a role in the world, but he did not want to lose American sovereignty to the League of Nations. This statue was put here just shortly after Lodge died; in the 1930s his grandson, Henry Cabot Lodge, was elected to the United States Senate from Massachusetts, and in 1952, John Fitzgerald's grandson, John F. Kennedy, defeated the younger Lodge for the United States Senate seat. Henry Cabot Lodge, one of Boston's most distinguished citizens, and in 1910, someone at Holy Cross gave a little toast: "Here's to the town of Boston, the home of the bean and the cod, where the Lowells talk only to Cabots, the Cabots talk only to God."
