Military for following the Japanese colonial model in establishing an authoritarian government in southern Korea. S. foreign service officer who was an advisor to USAMGIK, faults Hodge and his associates for relying on wealthy landlords and businessmen who could speak English for advice, culminating in appointment of them to top positions in a subsequent interim government. Not only had many of these individuals collaborated with the Japanese, but, as Carl Berger (1957) emphasizes, they had little interest in acting positively on the demands of Korean peasants and workers for reform.

3 Most historians agree that Hodge was definitely not suitable for the job he would hold in Korea. He had no training or experience in the administration of civil affairs or knowledge of Asian, not to mention Korean, culture or politics (Matray 1995, Cumings 1981). Joyce and Gabriel Kolko even criticize Hodge for perceiving Korea as a part of enemy territory and coming to the country as a “conqueror,” not a “liberator” (Kolko and Kolko 1972: 282). E. Grant Meade, who served in the USAMGIK, rightly reports that Hodge had no well-qualified advisor with him to moderate his shortcomings.
