He won election as Ohio governor in 1903, serving one term. He was appointed United States Ambassador to France in 1912, serving until November 1914. Herrick played a key role in wartime France, both in his participation in diplomatic relations between combatants and in various humanitarian aid pursuits. Herrick was reappointed Ambassador to France by President Harding in 1921, serving until his death in 1929. The collection consists of one photograph album made up by Mr. R. A. C. Smith and given out as souvenirs to those people who accompanied him aboard the steamer Admiral Schley on a trip to Cuba and Jamaica, March 7-22, 1901.
