The Houston Committee on Foreign Relations was organized in 1937 by prominent Houston leaders, including Jesse Jones, Will Clayton and George Brown. These individuals, with the assistance of the Council on Foreign Relations of New York, dedicated the Committee to a mission similar to that of the Council: to promote a better understanding of United States trade and foreign policy and international affairs.
