Abstract:

Biography of Dwight Whitney Morrow (b. 1873), born to James Elmore Morrow and Clara Johnson in Huntington, West Virginia, where his father was president of Marshall College. Dwight went to Amherst College in Massachusetts, with Calvin Coolidge as a fellow student and friend. Dwight eventually married Elizabeth Reeve Cutter, and practiced law in New York City, while his home was in Englewood, New Jersey. He became a partner in J.P. Morgan & Company, and served the nation by helping with Cuba's finances. He also served New Jersey by helping reform state prisons. In 1928 he was chosen by Pres. Coolidge to be the United States Ambassador to Mexico. Mexico was having internal political problems between the national government and the Roman Catholic Church, called the "Cristero revolt." Ambassador Morrow was influential in helping Mexico settle these religious problems. His daughter, Anne Spencer Morrow, met Charles A. Lindbergh while Lindbergh was touring Latin America, after he had flown the Atlantic; eventually they married. Ambassador Morrow returned from Mexico in January 1930 to fill an appointment as Senator for New Jersey for the balance of an unfilled term, and then to seek election in 1932.
