Why Is Henry Lane Wilson Influential?

According to Wikipedia, Henry Lane Wilson was an American attorney who was appointed by President William Howard Taft to the post of United States Ambassador to Mexico in 1910. He brought together opponents of Mexico's democratically-elected President Francisco I. Madero in the Pact of the Embassy, colluding with them to stage a coup d'etat in February 1913. Soon after President Woodrow Wilson took office in March 1913, he was appalled to learn that the American ambassador was involved in the plot in which the president and vice president of Mexico were murdered. President Wilson recalled him from his post as ambassador. "He became one of the most controversial envoys to serve in Mexico." "For Mexicans, Henry Lane Wilson is perhaps the most vilified U.S. official of this [20th] century."
