Ink signature of Wilson's Secretary of Agriculture.
Signature: "D. F. Houston", 4x2¼ card. David F. Houston (1866-1940) was President of Texas A&M and the University of Texas, and Chancellor of Washington University in St Louis before being named Secretary of Agriculture in the Wilson administration (1913-1920). Much agricultural legislation was enacted by Congress during his tenure, including the establishment of agricultural extension services. As Secretary of the Treasury (1919-1920), Houston warned of a post-war recession, and then was blamed when this prediction came true. Heavily toned. Adhesive residue on verso. Fine condition.
