The President accepts the resignation of his Assistant Secretary of Agriculture.
Typed Letter Signed: "Woodrow Wilson" as President, 1½p, 7x8¾, separate sheets. The White House, Washington, 1914 June 29. To Hon. Beverly T. Galloway, Assistant Secretary of Agriculture. In full: "I have your letter of June twenty-sixth offering your resignation to accept the position of Dean and Director of the New York State College of Agriculture and Experiment Station at Cornell University, the resignation to take effect on July thirty-first, next. It is with deep and genuine reluctance that I accept the resignation and only in deference to your desire to accept the position at Cornell University. Your long service of the Government has been of the highest value to it. You have illustrated the finest quality of a public servant and it is a distinct loss to the Government that you should withdraw. May I not earnestly express the hope that you will greatly enjoy your new duties and that your service of the Government will be a constant source of benefit to you in the work that lies ahead of you?" President WOODROW WILSON appointed BEVERLY T. GALLOWAY as Assistant Secretary of Agriculture on March 17, 1913. Galloway served until July 31, 1914, when he resigned (accepted by this letter) to become Dean and Director of the New York College of Agriculture and Experimental Station at Cornell University in Ithaca, New York. Galloway had a background in the study of plant diseases. In 1916, he returned to the Bureau of Plant Industry, a division of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, as a Senior Plant Pathologist, retiring in 1933. Lightly creased. Heavy blue type, lightly smudged, probably as a result of new typewriter ribbon. Overall, fine condition.
