Background
This collection contains records from an organization known as the Inquiry, brought together by Colonel Edward M. House in 1917 at the request of President Woodrow Wilson. The goal of the Inquiry was to anticipate and gather information on various issues that may come up at the Paris Peace Conference of 1919. They conducted voyages to and studies of various countries and regions throughout the world, then compiled information about the current state of those countries into reports for the United States delegation to the Paris Peace Conference.
