The Journal of Race Development was the first American academic journal of international relations. It was founded in 1910 by G. Stanley Hall[1] along with George Hubbard Blakeslee, both of Clark University. Despite a name which now suggests a journal devoted to eugenics, the journal, in fact, dealt with a variety of topics connected with politics, foreign affairs and international relations. It was renamed the Journal of International Relations,[2] which in turn was merged with Foreign Affairs in 1922.
