This chapter discusses how, throughout its first century, the Mississippi Valley Historical Association-Organization of American Historians contributed in major ways to the development of diplomatic history as a field of historical study. The opportunities the organization offered included the publication of articles in its journals, and the story the many articles have told is dominated by two big themes: the development of a continental empire and the rise of a global power, two of the major features of American history.

Keywords:   Mississippi Valley Historical Association, Organization of American Historians, diplomatic history, American history, continental empire, global power
