Stimson, Henry Lewis.
     Volume 1.
1909
Volumes 1, 2 and 3: Volume 1 begins in January, 1909, while Stimson was United States Attorney for the Southern District of New York and covers such matters as his appointment, his reorganization of that office, and his work on the American Sugar Refining case. As a reluctant candidate for governor of New York in 1910, Stimson wrote little in his diary about either the state convention or the campaign, but his acceptance of the post of secretary of war in the Taft administration in 1911 is fully described, as are his two years in that office.
