This chapter focuses on William Dodd's appointment as U.S. Ambassador to Germany in 1933 under the administration of President Franklin D. Roosevelt. It first considers Dodd's views about the causes and remedy of the Depression and his argument favoring the disintegration of urban industrial centers with a corresponding increase in independent, landowning farmers. It then discusses Dodd's support for Roosevelt's presidential bid in 1933 and his appointment as ambassador to Berlin shortly after Roosevelt became president.

Keywords:   ambassador, William Dodd, Germany, Franklin D. Roosevelt, Depression, industrial centers, farmers
