Birth: 1864
Constantine
St. Joseph County
Michigan, USA
Death: 1925

United States Army General. A graduate of the United States Military Academy at West Point, his military career included service in the Spanish-American War and service with the Second United States Infantry regiment during the Philippine-American War. Following the capture of insurrectionist Emilio Aguinaldo and the defeat of the Filipino forces, he served as governor of Tayabas Province, which is now known as Quezon, in 1902 and 1903, and as assistant chief of the Philippine Constabulary. He was promoted to Brigadier General and Chief of the constabulary forces, a post that he held from 1907 until he left in 1913. He was also Chief of Staff of the 27th Infantry Division, the commander of the 58th Brigade 29th Infantry Division and Provost Marshal General and American representative to the Inter-Allied Military mission to Hungary. On August 11, 1919, General Bandholtz arrived in Budapest as one of four generals to become the Inter-Allied Control Commission for Hungary, primarily to supervise the disengagement of Romanian troops from Hungary. He became famous when, on the night of October 5, 1919, as President of the Day of the Commission, mainly through bluff, armed only with a riding crop, he prevented a group of Romanian soldiers from removing Transylvanian treasures from the National Museum. (bio by: Graveaddiction)
