Henry Cabot Lodge

Henry Cabot Lodge (1850 - 1924) was an American Republican Senator and historian from Massachusetts. He had a PhD in history from Harvard and was a long-time friend and confidant of Theodore Roosevelt. Lodge had the role of the first Senate Majority Leader. He is probably best known for his involvement in foreign policy, especially his battle with President Wilson in 1919 over the Treaty of Versailles.

He was the grandfather of Henry Cabot Lodge Jr (July 5,1902-February 27, 1985).

In 1924, Henry Cabot Lodge Jr graduated from Harvard University. In November 1936, Lodge was elected to the U.S. Senate as Republican. He served from January 1937 to February 1944 when he took part in World War II. In 1946 Lodge returned to the Senate. He persuades Eisenhower to run for the Republican presidential nomination. Lodge served as his campaign manager. In November 1952 Lodge was defeated by John F. Kennedy in the election for the Senate. Lodge was named U.S. ambassador to the United Nation in 1953 which he left in 1960 to run for Vice President under Nixon's nomination as President (against John F. Kennedy).

The Cabot Lodges of Massachusetts imported significant quantities of vintage Madeira and Port Wine. Some of the Madeiras and Ports were sold at Sotheby's, and that is also where our bottles were bought.
