wednesday 1.13.16
Bainbridge Colby (December 22, 1869 – April 11, 1950) was an American lawyer, a political progressive,[4] a co-founder of the United States Progressive Party and Woodrow Wilson's last Secretary of State. Colby was a Republican until he helped co-found the National Progressive Party in 1912; he ran for multiple offices as a member of that party, but always lost.[5]

Wilson's appointment of Colby was "bizarre" says historian John Milton Cooper, for Colby had no diplomatic experience or skills. Editorial responses from leading newspapers ranged "from puzzlement to outrage."[6] Colby was chosen because he was totally loyal to Wilson; he left no notable achievements in the office.
