See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

Eugene Meyer, Jr. has become the Administration’s adviser on relief for agricultural distress. Mr. Meyer is a native of California. He is one of the few American financiers who have been educated for their profession rather than merely grown up in it. After graduation from Yale, Mr. Meyer spent his early life in Europe, mastering the banking practices of Germany, Great Britain and France. The vast scheme of rural credits carried out by the War Finance Corporation has been virtually planned and administered by him.
