    Seeking records about Ervin Ross Marlin & William Woodin

    John Tepper Marlin Newbie

      I am writing the biographies of two people: 1. William Hartman Woodin, who was FDR's first Secretary of the Treasury, in 1933; and 2. My father, Ervin Ross Marlin, who was hired to work in the Treasury in 1933 and served under FDR until 1945. Besides Personnel records (SF 50), where should I be looking?  I've been to the FDR Library in Hyde Park and to NARA and to the Library of Congress (Manuscript Division) and the NY Public Library. The best information I could find was on my father's OSS work in World War II. Any suggestions on where I could get pre-war information? I have Ray Moley's book, of course; that is helpful.
