In August 1919, US president Woodrow Wilson appointed Major-General James G. Harbord to lead a commission investigating conditions in the Near East, and to advise on the feasibility of creating a U.S. mandate in the fledgling Armenian state, in the wake of the Armenian genocide in the Ottoman empire in 1915.
