Hardcover xl - Volume 2 inscribed - "very Truly Yours - D.F. Houston Jan 30,1933" - from an academic library, clean, normal library wear and markings - Memoirs of David F. Houston's experiences as a member of Woodrow Wilson's cabinet. - ["David Franklin Houston (February 17, 1866 - September 2, 1940) was an American academic, businessman and politician.Houston served President Woodrow Wilson as United States Secretary of Agriculture from 1913 to 1920 when he became United States Secretary of the Treasury until 1921. During his time as Agriculture Secretary many important agricultural laws were passed by the U.S. Congress, including the Smith-Lever Act, the Farm Loan Act, the Warehouse Act, and the Federal Aid Road Act. Houston came to theTreasury Department as World War I was ending and his brief tenure was marked by stormy controversies over federal monetary policies. As ex officio Chairman of the Federal Reserve Board, he issued severe warnings and, increased rediscount rates in order to prevent the inflation that the European allies were experiencing. Houston predicted a fall in U.S. prices, particularly of farm products, after the optimism of the Armistice wore off. He pushed for easier credit for farmers and urged them to produce less. But when prices fell more dramatically than expected in 1920, farm spokesmen unfairly accused Houston of deliberately wrecking agrarian prosperity. Abroad, England and France were pushing to cancel their war debts. Houston, the U.S. Congress and the President, against cancellation, converted the short-term debts to long-term loans. Houston resigned at the end of Wilson's term, after only a year in office."] - United States -- Politics and government -- 1913-1921.,Wilson, Woodrow, -- 1856-1924., Buchnummer des Verkäufers 11044.200421
