Chart 18: 12-02-1946 to 06-30-1948

This chart points out the consolidation of Mr. Vint's influence with the combination of engineering, landscape architecture, et. al., into one Branch of Development, the establishment of Concessions as a functional entity in its own right, and an Office of Information reporting directly to the Director. The one anomaly in the record is the Safety Division with Edwin C. Kenner as Chief. Although Kenner worked briefly in Safety after his discharge from the military, he was primarily an architectural engineer involved in maintenance type activities and would in the mid-1950's be the first Chief of Maintenance.
