HERBERT HOOVER
He signs a typed letter thanking an activist in the Citizens Committee promoting the Hoover Commission's recommendations.
Typed Letter Signed: "Herbert Hoover", 1 page, 7¼x10½. The Waldorf-Astoria Towers, New York, 1950 February 7. To Mrs. Hamilton King, East Hampton, L.I., N.Y. In full: "Caroline Slade has given me a glowing report of the fine work you are doing and effort you are making in support of the Commission on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government. I just want you to know that not only do my colleagues and I appreciate this but the Citizens Committee as well, of which you are such an active member." The former President had headed two Commissions on Organization of the Executive Branch of the Government (popularly called "Hoover Commissions") from 1947-1949 and 1953-1955. They recommended many measures to improve efficiency and management, which Congress accepted. The Citizens' Committee was a private organization, founded in New York in 1949, to publicize and support the recommendation of the Hoover Commission(s). It remained active through 1958. No information is available on Mrs. Hamilton King, but Caroline Slade (1874-1951), who had entered politics in the campaign for women's suffrage, chaired the national women's committee for Hoover's election in 1928 and served under him as International Prison Commissioner. The political science department of Bryn Mawr College, her alma mater, is named in her honor. Fine condition.
