Abstract:

This paper focuses on the primary events and issues that helped shape U.S.-Latvian relations from 1917 to 1941 by concentrating on U.S. and Latvian government documents, personal memoirs, monographs, and general histories of the region during this period. It analyzes the economic and political influences affecting the decision by the United States to recognize Latvian independence in July 1922 and shows how the question of recognition of Latvian independence became embedded within the larger framework of U.S.-Russian relations until finally separated by public pressure and political reality in 1922.
