Birth: Nov. 5, 1879
Death: Mar. 7, 1954

Presidential Cabinet Secretary. Served as United States Postmaster General from 1921 to 1922. He was an Indiana lawyer who was elected Republican National Chairman at age 38 in 1918. A few years later, he became "Movie Czar" of Hollywood as head of its self-censorship system. He is credited with establishing standards of good taste in the film industry which pulled Hollywood out of the scandals of the 1920's.
