Jacob Harry Hollander (1871-1940) was an economist active in social welfare and economic reform issues and a professor of economics at The Johns Hopkins University. He was a specialist in labor relations and the financial systems of Latin America. In 1900 he was named special commissioner to revise the laws on taxation in Puerto Rico, and President McKinley appointed him Treasurer of Puerto Rico. He organized the Treasury Department of the island and devised and introduced the revenue system known as the "Hollander Law." In 1905 Roosevelt sent Hollander to Santo Domingo. He was financial advisor to the Dominican Republic from 1908-10. Hollander was umpire in the Maryland and Upper Potomac coal fields during the labor disputes in 1918-20, and was a member of the board of referees of the Cleveland garment industry from 1921-32. He was chairman of the Maryland Tax Survey Commission in 1931-32.

Jacob Harry Hollander (b. July 23, 1871, Baltimore, Maryland-d. July 9, 1940, Baltimore, Maryland), professor of Economics at Johns Hopkins University, was an expert on government taxation laws. He served as financial and fiscal advisor to the U.S. government on Caribbean matters several times during his career. In 1900 Hollander served as special commissioner to revise the tax laws of Puerto Rico, of which he became Treasurer in 1901. The threat of intervention in the affairs of the Dominican Republic by several European countries in 1905 prompted President Theodore Roosevelt to appoint Hollander as confidential agent to examine the condition of the debt-ridden Dominican government. Hollander was instrumental in negotiating a settlement of the Dominican Republic's foreign debts in which the Dominican government agreed to the establishment of a U.S. receivership of Dominican customs duties in 1905. This provisional government was made more binding by a U.S.-Dominican convention signed in 1907 where the United States retained control of Dominican customs until 1941.
