Biographical Note

William S. Culbertson (1884-1966) was a member of the Institute of Politics, an organization that promoted the study of international problems and relations "with a view to creating a more sympathetic understanding of the ideals and policies of other nations." To carry out its ideas, the Institute of Politics in July and August of 1923 held a series of Roundtable Conferences at Williams College, Massachusetts. In addition to the Roundtable Conferences, there were two Open Conferences, one of which was led by Culbertson who at that time was a member of the U. S. Tariff Commission (1917-1925). Culbertson discussed "Problems of Raw Materials and Foodstuffs in the Commercial Policies of Nations."
