Although menus from the Hayes administration Buy American, or at Least Decorate American An 1826 federal law required that “all furniture purchased for the use of the President's House (the name “White House” was adopted only during Theodore Roosevelt's presidency) shall be as far as practicable of American or domestic manufacture.” This legislation helped promote the fledgling domestic glass industry: virtually all glassware since then has been purchased from American manufacturers.

They found heroes in “realistic” diplomatists such as Alexander Hamilton and Theodore Roosevelt , while damning “idealists” such as Thomas Jefferson and, of course, Wilson. The realist critique dominated writing in the field into the 1960s. It infused new energy and ideas but in time became almost trivialized in arcane debates over whether this individual or...

Although the work is not organized chronologically, it remains valuable to modern scholars because many of Weiss’ sources are now lost. In 1865 Weiss wrote a controversial review...
