Honorable Marriner S# Eccles, Chairman
Board of Governors of the
Federal Reserve System
Washington, D. C.
Dear Governor Eccles:
I am very much interested in the
vacancy now existing in the Federal Reserve
Board, caused by the resignation of Mr.
Morrison of Texas.
You will remember that we tried
to find a farm member for the Board from
Missouri who could qualify, and didn't
succeed in doing so*
We have a young man in Missouri
who is eminently qualified for this place.
He is James K. Vardaman, J r., who is now in
charge of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation for this State. Me is the son of
former Senator Vardaman*
We ought to have at least one
representative on the Board west of the
Mississippi River, and Mr. Vardaman has had
all the background, experience, and everything else that is necessary to make him a
qualified Member of the Board.
If you feel like recomme
to the President, I will appreciaj
Sincerely

Harry
