Lodge, Henry Cabot (b. Boston, Mass., 12 May 1850; d. Boston, Mass., 9 November 1924) He was a Republican congressman from Mass. (1887–92), and senator (1893–1924). He emerged as the Senate’s foremost authority on foreign affairs and chaired its Foreign Relations Committee (1919–24). He authored the Lodge corollary. Lodge won Senate approval for 14 Reservations setting conditions on US ratification of the treaty of Versailles and membership in the League of Nations. These Reservations (especially on Article X) were anathema to Woodrow Wilson and became the major issue resulting in Senate defeat of the treaty.
