This chapter examines the latter stages of U.S. military intervention in Haiti, which took violent and obtrusive turns in the late nineteenth and twentieth centuries under the U.S. president Herbert Hoover and how it led to the formation of the Robert R. Moton Educational Commission to Haiti in 1930. The president of the Tuskegee Institute, Moton suggested that both radical and conservative changes be implemented in the Haitian educational system. Through the Good Neighbor Policy, a political derivative of nineteenth-century U.S. Pan American ideals of hemispheric unity, Moton outlined a program that both enabled and challenged U.S. occupation beyond the rubric of education.

Keywords:   U.S. military intervention, Herbert Hoover, Robert R. Moton educational commission, Haitian educational system, Tuskegee Institute, Good Neighbor Policy, Hemispheric unity
