A James Who’s Who
Adams, Henry (1838–1913), historian. James knew him from Cambridge days, when Adams was teaching history at Harvard and editing the North American Review. Shortly after establishing himself in London at the end of 1876, James received very helpful introductions from Adams, who had been there when his father was Ambassador. James associated with Adams and his wife, Clover, in Rome, Paris, and especially London, forming a warm friendship with them. He also saw a good deal of them when he visited Washington in 1882, and stayed with the widowed Adams in 1905, when Adams and their friend, John Hay, Secretary of State, introduced James to many notable people, including President Theodore Roosevelt.
