This article is about the U.S. politician Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. (1902-1985). For his grandfather, see Henry Cabot Lodge.

Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. (July 5, 1902 - February 27, 1985) was a United States Senator from Massachusetts and ambassador to the United Nations, Vietnam, West Germany, and the Vatican (as Special Envoy). He was the Republican nominee for Vice President under Richard Nixon in the 1960 Presidential election.

Henry Cabot Lodge Jr. in Worldwar[]

Henry Cabot Lodge served as the U.S. ambassador to the Race under the Warren Administration.

Ambassador Lodge negotiated the meeting of Jonathan Yeager and Kassquit, a Tosevite raised as a female of the Race. He further expressed the United States' distress over the renewed war between Germany and the Race in 1965, but communicated America's stance of neutrality.[1]

Lodge probably was not complicit in the missile attack on the arriving Colonization Fleet in 1962. Nonetheless, when the Race learned later in 1965 that the U.S. was responsible, it fell to Lodge to communicate to Fleetlord Atvar of the Conquest Fleet of President Warren's agreement to let the Race destroy Indianapolis rather than surrender its space-faring capability.[2]

Lodge continued to serve as ambassador after Warren took his life, and Harold Stassen ascended to the presidency.[3] He retired in the 1970s and was succeeded by Henry Kissinger.[4]
