Consists chiefly of seven letters from Woodrow Wilson to Denman concerning the events leading to Denman's resignation from
his post as chairman of the U.S. Shipping Board in 1917. Denman disagreed with General George W. Goethals, general manager
of the U.S. Shipping Board Emergency Fleet Corp., over matters regarding shipbuilding efforts for the war emergency. As a
result, Wilson forced both men to resign. Also includes an undated letter from Edith Bolling Wilson to Denman on behalf of
her husband, and a letter, Dec. 7, [1917?], from Denman to her concerning war legislation. In addition, there is "In Memoriam,"
a printed transcript of the proceedings held at a special session of the U.S. Court of Appeals in San Francisco, Calif., March
30, 1959, concerning Denman following his death.
