Dear Mr. President

Owing to the sudden death of Judge Royal A. Gunnison, who had been acting as Federal Food Administrator for Alaska, it has become necessary to secure a successor.

After careful consideration I wish to recommend the appointment of Mr. Philip R. Bradley of Treadwell.

Mr. Bradley is strongly recommended by Governor Riggs, he is known personally to me, and in my opinion is an ideal man for this position. We understand that he has the confidence of all in Alaska. He is manager of the Treadwell property and is a man of force and excellent judgment and tact, and I am confident that he could administer the work in Alaska in a most satisfactory manner.

Faithfully yours,

Herbert Hoover


The White House,
3 July, 1918.
