Report upon the organization of the Department of the Interior

Description:

Assistant Treasury Secretary Charles H. Keep, Comptroller of Currency Lawrence O. Murray and Chief Forester Gifford Pinchot provide President Roosevelt with a detailed report of the organization and operations of the Department of the Interior.

The report recommends the dissolution of several divisions.
