The subject of this article is of a real-life person, place, group, company, product, or creative work that has been mentioned "in-universe" in a canon source.

At the plenary session of the Near East Peace Conference on 6 December 1926, Richard Washburn Child, the U.S. ambassador to Italy, stated that the U.S. would observe the "Near East settlement," attending meetings and participating in talks. However, U.S. diplomats were not authorised to join committees, sign reports, or vote on decisions. This conference was reported in the 6 December 1926 issue of the New York Chronicle.
Behind the scenes
- The text of the article mentioning the Near East Peace Conference in the prop issue of the New York Chronicle featured in Fantastic Beasts and Where to Find Them was taken from the real 21 November 1922 issue of The Evening World. This represents an anachronism, as the film is set in 1926, but the actual historical event referenced happened in 1922. Richard Washburn Child served as the U.S. ambassador to Italy from 1921 to 1924 in the real world.
