¶ I hesitated to insert this on my own initiative because it seems to be accepted here and elsewhere that Charles S. Hamlin was the first "Chairman" of the Federal Reserve Board, but the First Annual Report of the Federal Reserve Board (for the period ending Dec. 31, 1914, published GPO, 1915) identifies, on page 23, William Gibbs McAdoo, Sec. of the Treasury as the Chairman, and Charles S. Hamlin as the "Governor".
