    Who was in charge of immigration visa applications in Poland?

      I am currently doing research for a family holocaust memoir and am trying to understand the US embassy structure in Poland in 1938/1939.  At this point, I understand that Anthony J.D. Biddle was the US Ambassador to Poland, John K. Davis was the American Consul General in Warsaw, and we have a copy of a letter signed by Marcel E. Malige as American Consul (Research shows that Mr. Malige became 2nd Secretary in Warsaw in 1938).  What do all these titles really mean in regards to who actually dealt with the visa applications?  How did the system work in 1938/1939 before the embassy was closed in Sept. 1939?
