 Henry L. Stimson - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
Henry Lewis Stimson (September 21, 1867 – October 20, 1950) was an American statesman, who served as Secretary of War, Governor-General of the Philippines, and Secretary of State at various times.
From 1930 to 1931 Stimson was the Chairman of the U.S. delegation to the London Naval Conference.
Stimson wrote that Nicaraguans "were not fitted for the responsibilities that go with independence and still less fitted for popular self-government." Later, after he was appointed Governor-General of the Philippines (succeeding General Leonard Wood), an office he held from 1927 to 1929, he opposed Filipino independence for the same reason.

 Aerospace Power Journal: Henry L. Stimson: The First Wise Man. . - Net Assessment - book review
To the extent he is remembered at all, Henry L. Stimson (1867-1950) probably is most often recalled for declaring that "gentlemen do not read each other's mail," a sniffy observation which accompanied his 1930 directive to close the US State Department's cryptography office (aka "the Black Chamber").
In Stimson's case, those tendencies were reinforced by a strong sense of noblesse oblige and, as was common among privileged men of his day, a no-less-strong belief in the inherent superiority of white, Anglo-Saxon, Protestant males.
According to Schmitz, both Stimson and his successors (basically the same group collectively and memorably referred to by David Halberstam as "the best and the brightest") shared a number of important characteristics: high intelligence, impressive dedication to public service, a somewhat narrow worldview, and the unswerving assurance they were always right.
