    • Wentworth By the Sea Hotel
    The Portsmouth Peace Treaty Forum welcomes the return of Harvard's Graham Allison and The Brookings Institution's Fiona Hill for a program, "Reconsidering the Trilateral Cooperation Study: Relationships Between Japan, Russia and the US." A discussion of their research, presented in a Portsmouth Peace Treaty Forum in 1995, considers where Russia-Japan, Russia-US and US-Japan relationships stand, on the eve of the Presidential election. The free program also celebrates the 110th anniversary of Theodore Roosevelt's Nobel Peace Prize for orchestrating the Portsmouth Peace Treaty.
    • 16 Nov 2016
    • 7:00 PM - 8:00 PM
    • Milford Historical Society, 6 Union Street, Milford NH

    The Milford Historical Society presents a special program in November to take a closer look at the Portsmouth Peace Treaty and its historical connections with Milford’s John McLane, Governor of New Hampshire in 1905.

    NH Humanities Council speaker Charles B. Doleac, founder/moderator of the Portsmouth Peace Treaty Forum,  presents a program describing President Theodore Roosevelt’s multi-track diplomacy that included the Russian and Japanese delegations, the US Navy and the New Hampshire citizens who hosted the thirty days of negotiations that resulted in the Portsmouth Peace Treaty. Theodore Roosevelt received the Nobel Peace Prize in 1906 – 110 years ago – for orchestrating the negotiations that ended what historians now call “World War Zero,” the Russo-Japanese War. 

     The program is a NH Humanities Council “Humanities To Go” selection and is free and open to the public. A question and answer session will follow the illustrated talk. For more information on the program, contact the Society at 603-673-3385.


    Mr. Doleac will explain the significance of the role local citizens, including Governor John McLane who with the NH Executive Council were the official hosts of the peace conference held in August of 1905. Though the formal negotiations were held at the Portsmouth Naval Shipyard, the Governor, then-Secretary of State Edward Nathan Pearson and many other prominent New Hampshire business and political leaders played in welcoming the Japanese and Russian diplomatic delegations to the state.
