QUERY: GERMANY REPARATIONS COMMISSION PHOTO

An E-Sylum reader writes:

"The Library of Congress contains an image entitled: "Reparations Commission with Stevenson, 6/25/29".

If this is indeed the Inter-allied Reparations Commission then it decided on the size and conditions of Germany's WWI wergild. As such they all exercised a profound effect on numismatics in the 20th century. One had already attached his signature to a large number of banknotes. Collectively their decisions would contribute in no small manner to German's hyperinflation.

The LoC record does not identify them. Can the historians among e-Sylum readers identify any or all of them? One at least may have been a U.S. Vice-President.

So, any good 20th century historians out there? Can anyone tell us who any of these people are? -Editor
