CLERK 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 HST/cb g him
