This letter dated February 28, 1947, from State Farmer’s Home Administration Director Walter Maddock to Regional FHA Director Cal Ward, highlights the notes from a February 17, 1949 United States (US) Department of Agriculture meeting. The February 17, 1947 notes are enclosed within Maddock’s letter from February 28, 1949. The US Department of Agriculture notes from the February 17, 1949 meeting pertain to “a joint meeting between Representatives of the Fort Berthold Indian Agency and the FHA.” The notes from this February 17, 1949 meeting discuss how “there are between 30 and 40 Indian families living on the reservation who need loans,” the average loan each of these families should receive, and the number of livestock each family should have to “make it a go.” Maddock states in the February 17, 1949 notes he cannot make any determination and will have to discuss the matter with regional officials. The February 17, 1949 notes conclude with a list of six details to look into. Attendees of the February 17, 1949 meeting include Ben Reifel, George Gillette, Elmer Gahley, James Hall, Walter Maddock, A.Q. Stine, O. Lenard Orvedal, and Maruice Switzer.
