Hay, John

▪ United States statesman
born Oct. 8, 1838, Salem, Ind., U.S.
died July 1, 1905, Newbury, N.H.
 U.S. secretary of state (1898–1905) who skillfully guided the diplomacy of his country during the critical period of its emergence as a great power; he is particularly associated with the Open Door policy toward China.

      Hay studied law in Springfield, Ill., where he met the future president Abraham Lincoln. He served as President Lincoln's private secretary from 1861 to 1865, and under succeeding Republican administrations he held various diplomatic posts in Europe. Following a five-year stint as editorial writer for the New York Tribune, Hay returned to government service and was assistant secretary of state from 1879 to 1881.

      Hay became nationally prominent with the election of President William McKinley, under whom he served as ambassador to Great Britain (1897–98) and then secretary of state. He took part in the Paris peace negotiations to end the Spanish–American War (1898) and was particularly active in promoting the momentous decision to retain the entire Philippine archipelago as one of the spoils of war, thus marking the United States as a major imperialist power.

      Hay is probably best remembered as the promoter of the Open Door policy, which was designed to counter the trend toward divisive spheres of influence in the Orient. In 1899 he sent diplomatic notes to six interested nations proposing equal trading rights in China for all nations. This move was followed by a second Hay Open Door circular in the midst of the Boxer Rebellion in China (1900), proposing that all nations cooperate in preserving that country's territorial and administrative integrity.

      In 1901 Hay negotiated with Great Britain the second Hay–Pauncefote Treaty, giving the United States exclusive rights to build a canal across the Isthmus of Panama. Two years later he assisted President Theodore Roosevelt in the diplomatic maneuvers leading to Panama's (Panama Canal) independence and the beginning of canal construction.

      Throughout his life Hay found time to exercise his considerable literary talent, and his Pike County Ballads and Other Pieces (1871) and his novel The Bread-Winners (1883) were well received. In collaboration with John G. Nicolay, he was also responsible for two historical works that remained standard for many years: Abraham Lincoln: A History (1890) and Lincoln's Complete Works (1894).
