Morrow

[mawr-oh, mor-oh]
Morrow, Dwight Whitney, 1873-1931, American banker and diplomat, b. Huntington, W.Va. He practiced law in New York City and entered (1914) the banking house of J. P. Morgan & Company. After the United States entered World War I, he became a member of the allied transport council and chief civilian aide to Gen. John J. Pershing. In the midst of the ill feeling aroused by the Mexican laws expropriating U.S. holdings in Mexico, President Coolidge appointed (1927) Morrow ambassador to Mexico. His service was notable because it marked a new spirit of cooperation in U.S. relations with Latin America. He was afterward (1930) a delegate to the London Naval Conference and served (1930-31) in the U.S. Senate as a Republican from New Jersey. His daughter, Anne Spencer Morrow, married Charles A. Lindbergh.
