ANDREW W. MELLON (1855-1937). Mellon was an extremely wealthy and successful businessman who made his fortune in banking and industrial ventures. He was also a prodigious philanthropist and a politician; he served as U.S. Secretary of the Treasury from 1921-1932. TLS. 1pg. March 21, 1929. Washington D.C. A typed letter signed “A W Mellon” as Secretary of the Treasury. Mellon thanks A.H. Murchison, an Oklahoma scholar, for his sentiments of approval. “Dear Mr. Murchison: I have your letter of March 18th and thank you for the approval which you expressed of my work at the Treasury and for your good wishes on my continuing in the Cabinet of President Hoover Sincerely yours, A W Mellon”.
