Cuba: From Gunboat Diplomacy to Good Neighbor Policy

Examining U.S.-Cuba relations in the early twentieth century, this installation traces American foreign policy from Theodore Roosevelt’s “big stick” diplomacy and push for American involvement in the Cuban War of Independence in 1898 to the more conciliatory approach of Franklin Delano Roosevelt’s Good Neighbor Policy in 1933. Works selected by FIU undergraduate students will be drawn from The Wolfsonian–FIU Library’s collection—illustrated sheet music covers from the Spanish-American War, rare books and photographs from the Jean S. and Frederic A. Sharf Collection, and photographs and ephemera from donor Vicki Gold Levi.
