When Wilson attended the Paris Peace Conference of 1919 where the Treaty of Versailles was worked out, he brought only three advisors, including one medieval historian Charles Haskins, serving as chief of the Western European division of the American commission.

Less wide-ranging were Haskins' earlier studies of the Normans, Norman Institutions, (1918) which still forms the basis of our understanding of how medieval Normandy functioned, and the more popular book The Normans in European History (1915).

Haskins' most famous work is The Renaissance of the Twelfth Century (published 1927).
We shall confine ourselves to the Latin side of this renaissance, the revival of learning in the broadest sense— the Latin classics and their influence, the new jurisprudence and the more varied historiography, the new knowledge of the Greeks and Arabs and its effects upon western science and philosophy, he stated in his preface.

Haskins, appointed the government’s rural recovery co-ordinator after the foot-and-mouth epidemic, told the conference in Shropshire that many organic farmers were suffering as a result of production costs and could not compete in the marketplace.
Haskins argued that EU trade regulations meant the logical conclusion of Charles’s pro-organic views would be the withdrawal of Britain from Europe.
Charles allegedly replied: “So?” Last year Haskins, who championed convenience food as head of Northern Foods, supplier to Marks and Spencer, described as “rubbish” Charles’s claims that average farm incomes were only £100 a week, though the figure came from government statistics.
