ALL ABOUT GARFIELD
Fuel Administrator Held Chairs a

Dr. Harry Augustus Garfield, Nation
al Fuel Administrator, is a son o
James A. Garfield, President of th
United States, who was assassinate

Interior under President Roosevell
He was named Federal Fuel Admin
istrator by President Wilson on Aug
23, at which time he was just com
pleteing his work as Chairman o
the Committee to fix the price o
wheat until next year.
The findings of this body, an
nounced a few days after his ap
pointment as Fuel Administrator, se
the price at $2.20 a bushel, whicl
aroused a good deal of criticism fror
the farmers, who had been gettin]
nearly fifty per cent above that fig
ure. Dr. Garfield began his work ii
charge of the fuel situation in the fir;|
week of September. Within a mont!
he was in difficulties over the situa
tion in his home state of Ohio, wher
mayors of cities were commandeer
ing coal that passed through becaus
there was none in town; and sine
then the problems which his admin
istration has had to struggle witl
have steadily grown more involve!

merce in 1898 and 1889, was an or
ganizer of the Municipal Association
and served as Vice President of i
savinngs bank and director in severa
other financial and commercial cor
From 1891 to 1897 he was Drofes
sor of contracts in the law school oi
Western Reserve University, and ir
1903 Princton, then under the presi
dency of Woodrow Wilson, calilec
him into service as professor of pol
itics. He served in this post for fiv<
years, becoming a close friend o:
Grover Cleveland and Woodrow Wil
ons. In 1908 he was elected presi
dent of his Alma Mater, Williams
to succeed the Rev. Dr. Henry Hop
kins, and is still serving in this cap
Q/^iHrtTi fn his work for th<
government. For several years hi!
secretary in this position was Fran
