    Fe Statement of Frank L._.YcVeye.

    President Donovan presented to the Executive Committee a letter
which he had received from Dr. Frank L. McVey, former president of
the University of Kentucky, which letter was ordered received and
copied in full in the minutes.

                                         April 28, 1944

     Dr. H. L. Donovan,
     University of Kentucky,
     Lexington, Kentucky.

     My dear President Donovan:

          I am in receipt of your letter of April 27 with en-
     closure of a copy of a letter from Honorable R. B. Hobson
     bearing the date of April 26.   In your letter you ask me
     to make a statement concerning the employment of Dean
     Graham and his work at the University of Kentucky while I
     was president.

          In response to that request, I am including in this
     letter a brief resume of the period in which I knew Colonel
     Graham in my official relation to the University.

          Dean Paul Anderson, who was connected with the Uni-
     versity of Kentucky as professor of mechanical engineering
     and Dean of the College of Engineering for forty-two years,
     died on April 8, 1934.   Dean Anderson possessed many
     qualities of leadership and had a large number of friends
     among alumni and business and professional men. He served
     the University enthusiastically and helpfully.   To find a
     successor to Dean Anderson was a difficult task.    I made
     many inquiries, visited a number of men engaged in engineer-
     ing education, and conferred with several persons who were



recommended for the position as dean.  During the interval
between Dean Anderson's death and the appointment of Dean
Graham, Professor W. E. Freeman, then assisting dean, was
appointed acting dean of the College.

    For many years the College of Engineering at the Uni-
versity of Kentucky had been working under difficulties; the
appropriations for equipment and maintenance of the School
were small, and the only buildings that were added were
the one erected in the first World War of 1917 by a grant
made by the United States Army, and the Wendt building. The
plant had gone down so far and the equipment was so obsolete
that the standing of the School was in question with the
Engineering Accrediting Agency.  The problem, therefore,
which faced me was to find a man for the deanship who could
be recommended to the board of trustees for appointment.
With that problem was associated the question of a new
engineering plant, a marked increase in the College equip-
ment, and the reorganization of the curriculum.

     I had n t Colonel James H. Graham but had no special
knowledge of him until the question of the deanship came up.
I made a good many inquiries and then had an interview with
him in April, 1935.  Colonel Graham had a large and extend-
ed experience in the field of engineering and business enter-
prises but he did not have any experience in the field of
education. Though this latter was a handicap, neverthe-
less, his other qualities were such that I felt that he
could do the things that needed to be done in the rejuvena-
tion of the College of Engineering.  He was appointed dean
at the meeting of the board of trustees May 30, 1935. Dur-
ing the five years from his appointment until my retirement
on June 30, 1940,  Dean Graham was a colleague of mine at
the University of Kentucky.

     At the meeting of the board in May, 1935, there was
considerable discussion about the need of buildings on the
campus; among those was included the Student Union.   It
was at this time that PWA grants were open to application
for the construction of buildings on college campuses. The
program which the University had in mind amounted to more
than a million and a half dollars.   Colonel Graham, after
he became dean of the College of Engineering, was helpful
in carrying on the negotiations with the federal authorities.
He drew up many of the papers and discussed the various
problems with representatives of banks and insurance com-
panies in connection with the placing of the bonds.   Pro-
ceeds from these bonds were used to supplement the 45%
grant of the Federal Government.

     Dean Graham directed the preparation of plans and speci-
fications, and I am sure that his knowledge of construction,
finance methods, and procedures resulted in savings to the
Univcrsity and in the construction of sound and effective
buildings.   These buildings were the Law Building, the



    Student Union Building, the Biological Science buildings
    Home Economics building, the three buildings in the Engin-
    eering College group, a dormitory for women erected on
    Euclid Avenue, and a heating plant. Under his direction
    the construction went forward rapidly, and in the course of
    two years the University had added to its plant a million
    and a half dollars worth of hew buildings.

         In the meantime changes were being made in the Engineer-
    ing College; the old vocational type of instruction was
    eliminated, additional courses arranged, and the College
    as a consequence presented a curriculum that was comparable
    to the best engineering schools in the country. Colonel
    Graham was moreover responsible in large part for the fact
    that the legislative budgets for 1936-38-40 carried appro-
    priations for equipment in the Engineering College. Because
    of the new plant for the College, a rejuvenation of its-
    courses, new members on the staff, and the additional equip-
    ment, the threat to the standing of the Engineering College
    was removed. Heretofore only two of the four engineering
    courses had been recognized by the standardizing agency
    but upon the completion of the new plant and after the ad-
    ditions in the equipment and staff, all of the courses
    in the College of Engineering of the University of Kentucky
    were accredited.

         This not inconsiderable progress, accomplished as it
    was during a period of financial depression, advanced the
    interests of the University of Kentucky materially; to
    this progress Colonel Graham contributed much.

                                       Fraternally yours,

                                       (Signed) Frank L. McVey

     Go Statement 2f Olawe Motor Corporation.

     President Donovan presented to the Executive Committee a letter
from the President of the Mlawen Motor Corporation, offices in New
York, which was ordered received and copied in the minutes.



                    500 Fifth Avenue
                    New York, N. Y.

                                       April 3rd, 1944

The President,
University of Kentucky,
Lexington, Ky.

Dear Sir:

     In view of questions raised recently with respect to
commercial undertakings conducted at the Aeronautical Lab-
oratory at the University of Kentucky, we consider it de-
sirable from the standpoint of all concerned that we re-
cord herein our understanding of the basis on which this
work has been performed in relation to our contract with
the University of Kentucky for the maintenance and opera-
tion of the Laboratory.

     Some two years ago when the subject of commercial op-
erations first arose, the question of profits from such op-
erations was discussed with Col. Graham by kVessrs. George
Carlsont then President of Mawen Motor Corporation, and J.H.
Anderson and H.B. Griffith, Directors of Pan American Cor-
poration, S. A. (Pan American being the majority stockholder
of Mawen Motor Corporation).   At that time it was agreed
with Col. Graham that commercial contracts conducted in the
Laboratory would be executed by Mlawen Motor Corporation who
would assume the risk of loss inherent in such business.
It was explained to Col. Graham, however, that Mawen Motor
Corporation did not propose to profit from its contract for
the operation and maintenance of the Laboratory and it was
agreed the operation of the Laboratory should be conducted
on the following basis.

     The cost of labor, materials and overhead connected
with research and development work on the Mawen engines was
to be borne by Mawen Motor Corporation.   Any profits re.l-
ized in the conduct of commerciallactivities in the Labora-
tory were to revert to the University of Kentucky, and Mawen
Motor Corporation was to assume the risk of loss resulting
from such activities.   However, it was understood that
because experience would be required to execute commercial
contracts.profitablyl losses might be retlized in initial
contracts, which losses were to be recovered out of profits
from subsequent contracts before any settlement was made
with the University.

     We are enclosing herein a statement of Income and Ex-
penditure with respect to commercial contracts performed
from 1st May, 1941 to 31st December, 1943, showing that
Mawen Motor Corporation has borne a net loss on these
activities (including the cost of equipment specifically



purchased for such business) in the amount of $15,276.37.
In addition we wish to point out that it has been virtual-
ly impossible, because of wartime conditions, to pursue
research and development work on the Mawen engines. Despite
this fact, Mawen Motor Corporation has continued under its
contract with the University to operate and maintain the
laboratory at an out-of-pocket cost of $53,536.76 for the
period from 1st July, 1941 to 31st December, 1943.

     We will be obliged if you will indicate that the fore-
going outline of the a nditions under which this commercial
business has been conducted in the Aeronautical Laboratory
conforms with your understanding thereof.   It is under-
stood, of course, that this in no way alters or affects the
terms and conditions of the agreement between us for the
maintenance and operation of the Laboratory set out in your
letters to us of 20th July, 1940, 7th October, 1940, and
18th March, 1941.

     We also wish to take this opportunity to record our
appreciation of the friendly relations which have existed
between us in the past, and of the cooperation and courtesies
which we have received from the University.

                                Very truly yours,

                                   I'AWEN MOTOR CORPORATION

the minutes.

               Faculty of the College of Engineering
                      University of Kentucky

                      Adopted April 14, 1944

Whereas charges and criticisms have been made reflecting on the com-
petence and integrity of Colonel James H. Graham, Dean of the Col-
lege of Engineering of the University of Kentucky, and

Whereas the members of the Faculty of the College of Engineering after
nine years of service with Dean Graham feel qualified to evaluate his
character and services to the University of Kentucky, and

Whereas this Faculty knows the following statements to be true. (1)
Dean Graham is a man of the highest character and integrity. (2)He
has always dealt fairly with the members of the engineering staff and
student body. (3) He places the University and the College of
Engineering ahead of any personal gain either financial or honorary.
(4) He is unassuming, honest, a man of his word, and an excellent
executive. Now therefore,

it r     Qe l  by the Faculty of the College of engineering in
regular session assembled (1) that we express our confidence in the
ability and leadership of Dean Graham as an engineering educator
and as an outstanding engineer; (2)that we commend the President
and the Board of Trustees of the University for the stand taken by
them in the defense of Dean Graham; (3) that we reaffirm our loyalty
to the University, to the College of Engineering, to President Dono-
van, and to Dean Gm ham.



EL i furthaer resolved that a copy of these resolutions be sent to
President Donovan, to the Board of Trustees, and to Dean Graham at
his Washington, D.C. address where he, at the time of the adoption
of these resolutions, is serxng the War Department on important bus-
iness directly connected with the war effort.

     I. Letter from W,= Departmant Concerning kenr en Laborator=.

     Mr. R. P. Hobson related to the Executive Committee that he had
written Senator Albert B. Chandler to secure information from the
War Department concerning what information the War Department may have
had in regard to the contract with University of Kentucky and the Ma-
wen Motor Corporation for the use of the Wenner-Gren Laboratory. He
presented the following letter which was addressed to the Honorable
Albert B. Chandler and forwarded to him.

                                            April 28, 1944

     Honorable Albert B. Chandler
     United States Senate
     Washington, D.C.

     Dear Senator Chandler:

          The Legislative and Liaison Division of the General
     Staff has referred to me the letter addressed to you by
     Mr. R. P. Hobson of Louisville, Kentucky, dated April
     15, which letter I return.   This letter pertains to cer-
     tain contracts between the War Department and the Universi-
     ty of' Kentucky for testing oils provided by the War Depart-
     mentp the tests being conducted at the Wenner-Gren Aero-
     nautical Research Laboratory owned by the University of
     Kentuckyo   The part of the testing done at the Research
     Laboratory is performed by the Mawen Corporation under an
     arrangement it has with the University of Kentucky for the
     operation of the Research Laboratory,

          All of the officers and directors of Mawen Corporation
     ae United States citizens.   The majority of its stock,
     however, is owned by Pan American Corporation which, in


    turn, is controlled by Mr. Wenner-Gren, a Swedish National.

         Mr. Wenner-Gren was included on the proclaimed list
    of blocked Nationals on February 7, 1942.  The shares of
    stock of the Mawen Corporation owned by the Pan American
    Corporation are in a blocked account in New York City and
    the affairs of the Pan American Corporation are managed by
    Mr. John H. Anderson of Nassau. We are informed that in
    no way can communication be made to Mr. Wennrir-Gren as to
    the affairs of Mawen Corporation or Pan American Corpora-
    tion.  The Mawen Corporation, being foreign-owned, op-
    erates under Treasury Department license and makes monthly
    reports to that Department covering its tm nsactionso

         I find that copies of all pertinent documents relat-
    ing to the Wenner-Gren Research Laboratory and to the
    maintenance and operating contract between the University
    and the Mawen Corporation have been in the files of the
    War Department since early in 1941. Accordingly, to
    answer specifically Mr. Hobson's inquiry, we are fully
    advised of the operation of the Wenner-Gren Aeronautical
    Research Laboratory on the campus of the University of
    Kentucky by the Mawen Corporation and this arrangement
    is entirely satisfactory to the War Department.

                                  Yours sincerely,
