Excerpt from Developing America's Waterways: Administration of the Inland Waterways Corporation Secretary of War asked that the present independent survey of the corporation's policies and administration be made. The invitation to undertake a study of the Inland Water ways Corporation was extended to the University of Chicago in the summer of 19 34. The expense incident to the survey was borne by the Public Administration Fund of the University of Chicago. In his original invitation, Secretary Dern requested that the report should be a confidential one and the study was undertaken on that basis. The survey was completed about the first of January, 193 5. After the Secretary of War and the executive officers of the corporation had had an opportunity to examine the report, Secretary Dern in April, 193 5, authorized its publication by the author and the University of Chicago.
