Hide Profile

The Free Trade League split off from the American Free Trade League (founded in Boston shortly after the Civil War) in 1919. George Haven Putnam was president of the Free Trade League in New York City until 1930. R.R. Bowker took over the presidency and helped to form the Council for Tariff Reduction which sought to achieve modest reductions in tariff levels by exerting pressure on Congress. The Free Trade League (and Council) ceased operations in 1933.
