COMMITTEE ON THE HISTORY OF THE FEDERAL RESERVE SYSTEM
In the summer of 1953 Mildred Adams, a New York journalist specializing in economic affairs, and Donald
B. Woodward, a director of the Vick Chemical Company and a trustee of the Brookings Institution,
developed an idea for a project, to be funded by a foundation, to write and publish a series of works on
the history of the Federal Reserve System. Woodward was able to elicit the interest and advice of some
prominent economists associated or familiar with the Federal Reserve System, including Robert D.
Calkins, president of the Brookings Institution; William McChesney Martin, Jr., chairman of the System's
Board of Governors; Walter Stewart, of the President's Council of Economic Advisors; Allan Sproul,
president of the Federal Reserve Bank of New York; and Joseph Willits, of the Rockefeller Foundation.
Moreover, Deputy Treasurer of the United States W. Randolph Burgess expressed his interest in writing a
"definitive" history of the Federal Reserve System when he retired from federal service.
With their encouragement and Burgess' tentative commitment to write a history, Adams and Woodward
formed an advisory council to seek funding from the Rockefeller Foundation, to monitor the preparatory
research for Burgess' history of the System, and to encourage other, complementary works. Called the
Committee on the History of the Federal Reserve System, its original members were Allan Sproul
(chairman), Donald Woodward (secretary), W. Randolph Burgess, William McChesney Martin, Jr., and
Walter Stewart. Calkins was invited to join once a grant was secured, and Cyril James, economic
historian and vice chancellor at McGill University, and Joseph Willits (by then retired from the Rockefeller
Foundation) were added later. Adams was appointed research director (later, executive director). The
committee's headquarters were in offices provided by the Federal Reserve Bank of New York, and space
was provided at the Brookings Institution for work that needed to be done in Washington, D.C.
On January 21, 1954, the Rockefeller Foundation awarded a grant of $10,000 to the committee for an
"exploratory study of the historical materials relating to the Federal Reserve System." The grant was to be
administered by Brookings. On April 20, 1954, the committee reported its successes in finding useful
collections of personal papers and research materials on the early history of the Federal Reserve System
and requested a five-year grant to undertake "a comprehensive history of the Federal Reserve System,
including the editing for publication of certain source materials, the writing of biographic sketches of some
of the most important figures, the composing of books, monographs, and articles on special facets of the
structure which emerge as of particular interest, and perhaps a popular history or two designed for wide
public reading." The proposed study was to be broad in scope, covering the entire system, including the
twelve regional banks. The request for a grant of $310,000 for support of this project was approved by the
Rockefeller Foundation on May 21, 1954.
From January 1954 to June 1956, Mildred Adams served as research director of the project. Adams, with
the assistance of a staff of researchers, proceeded to compile research and archival materials, uncover
pertinent personal papers, and encourage several monographic studies being compiled on the subject.
Meanwhile, however, Burgess had been appointed under secretary of the Treasury and decided that he
would not be able to start the planned comprehensive history any time soon. The committee spent the
next two years searching for an able economic historian to assume direction of this major study.
By the spring of 1956, the committee's failure to find a qualified scholar and Allan Sproul's retirement from
the Federal Reserve Bank of New York and subsequent resignation as chairman of the committee
caused problems. With no historian, the committee redefined its goals and requested the Rockefeller
Foundation to relieve the committee of its obligation to write a "definitive" major study and instead allow it
to encourage smaller, topical studies of the Federal Reserve System. The committee also requested that
the executive and administrative responsibilities be transferred to the Brookings Institution, under the
broad supervision of President Calkins. In June 1956 the foundation agreed to these conditions, and the
project was moved to Brookings. Since Adams preferred to stay in New York, she resigned as the
project's executive director effective July 31, 1956.
The committee continued to search for a historian and personnel and to encourage smaller studies until
the project was officially terminated on June 30, 1958. Among its accomplishments were the discovery
and report of 106 pertinent collections of personal papers and the deposit of several of these into

repositories; an inventory of the Carter Glass Papers held at the University of Virginia; Mildred Adams'
personal interviews with people affiliated with the Federal Reserve System; the compilation of
bibliographical and biographical card files; the completion of a biography of Benjamin Strong by Lester V.
Chandler; and some unpublished studies, including "Selective Credit Controls" by Carl Perry and "Legal
Aspects of the Lending Function of Federal Reserve Banks" by Howard Hackley.

be used "as suggesting points for further study." All are labeled "internal memoranda," "confidential," and
"not to be quoted." There is also correspondence between Robert D. Calkins and Everett Case dated

He left Chicago in 1909 to organize a foreign exchange department for the Bankers Trust Company in
New York. While continuing his work as vice president of Bankers Trust, Kent was appointed deputy
governor of the Federal Reserve Board in 1917, only to be reappointed one year later as the board's
director of the Division of Foreign Exchange. In 1919 he was simultaneously appointed the financial
adviser to the War Department and a United States representative to the Organization Committee of the
Reparations Commission in Paris. He continued to direct the Foreign Exchange Division at Bankers Trust

throughout the 1920s and 1930s while serving on various boards and committees, including the U.S.
Chamber of Commerce and the National Foreign Trade Council.
Included are correspondence and statistical data relating to the 1919 purchase of German gold by the
Federal Reserve Bank of New York; an unsigned copy of Kent's 1918 "Report on the Operations of the

Roosevelt requesting new legislation to regulate the American Express Company. Of particular interest is

international finance meetings. In 1930 he assisted with the drafting of the Bank for International
Settlement's charter and then was its president until 1935. Until his death in April 1945, Fraser was
president of the First National Bank of New York, and in 1941 was elected to a three-year term as director
of the Federal Reserve Bank.
