    Albert S Burleson, a conservative Democrat who previously served Texas in the House of Representatives, was appointed Postmaster General in 1913 by Woodrow Wilson. To his credit, he initiated the parcel post and airmail services, increasing mail service to rural areas. However, Burleson was one of the most reactionary politicians to have served as Postmaster General, which he demonstrated in ways that adversely affected national mail service and the government's civil service system, based on merit. His term is often seen as one of the worst in the history of the post. He is known for gaining cabinet support for instituting racial segregation in the US Post Office, which President Woodrow Wilson applied to other federal agenciesrnRear Admiral Bradley Allen Fiske, during his long career, invented more than a hundred and thirty electrical and mechanical devices including the rangefinder, with both naval and civilian uses, and wrote extensively on technical and professional issues; The New Yorker called him "one of the notable naval inventors of all time." One of the earliest to understand the revolutionary possibilities of naval aviation, he wrote a number of books of important effect in gaining a wider understanding of the modern Navy by the public.

As a side note, Harriet Austin was secretary of the National Dress Reform Association which, as the name suggests, encouraged reform of women's dress, especially long skirts, tight waists and modes incompatible with the refined taste of the day.
