Chapter Summary

When James Brown Scott was elected President of the Society at the 1929 Business Meeting, several members offered encomiums. In 1937, Scott began actively to seek a replacement for himself as President of the Society. In 1938, Ellery C. Stowell, chair of the Society's Nominating Committee, proposed that in the future a Nominating Committee be appointed several months in advance of the Annual Meeting "so as to allow for the fullest expression of opinion among the members of the Society". In 1939, the Journal published an Editorial Comment by James W. Garner on Nazi treatment of eminent German professors of public and private international law. The Society's progress in the thirties should not be judged simply or primarily by reference to its decline in membership. It was steadily solidifying its position as a scholarly organization. It was on a course that it would follow into the post-World War II years.
