Thomas Herrán (B.A. 1863, M.A. 1868, LL.D. 1900)
C.D. Fredricks & Co. 587 Broadway, New York, NY.
Georgetown College (1789-1815)
Born in Columbia in 1847, Herrán received both his B.A and M.A. degrees from Georgetown and would later be honored with a Doctorate of Laws in 1900. Although he enjoyed a successful career in service to the Columbian government, Herrán is probably best known for his efforts to negotiate the failed Hay-Herran Treaty with U.S. Secretary of State John M. Hay. This treaty would have given the U.S. a renewable lease on the land where the Panama Canal now sits.
