Old Right

The Old Right were a group of Conservative Republicans of the interwar years, led by Robert Taft[?], who opposed United States membership of the League of Nations and the New Deal. They successfully fought to cut down immigration in the 1920s.

They were called the "Old Right" to distinguish them from their New Right[?] succesors of the Cold War who were more friendly to both foreign and economic intervention.
