This collection of documents from 1910 to 1930, details both the political and financial machinations of the fruit companies in Honduras, but also the graft and corruption of the national government, the American banking community’s loans, the U.S. government’s response, and the various aborted popular/revolutionary uprisings. The largest single group of records relates to Honduran political affairs and revolutionary activity. Documents contain discussions of boundary disputes and border troubles with EL Salvador, Nicaragua, and Guatemala and revolutionary movements originating from these neighboring countries and from Mexico; German activities in Honduras in World War I; landing of U.S. Marines to protect U.S. citizens during revolutions; cases of alleged violation of neutrality laws, and shipment of arms and munitions to Honduras from the U.S.; presidential campaigns and elections; and more. Another large group of records relates to financial affairs, including the Honduran debt (internal and foreign) and loans to the Government of Honduras by various fruit companies. The materials were sourced from the U.S. National Archive. This collection is part of Archives Unbound.
