Arnold, "The CIO in American Politics, 1936-1948" (Ph.D. thesis, University of Maryland, 1952), pp. 225-227.

John M. Blum, ed., From the Morgenthau Diaries ( Boston, 1967), III, p. 392; "Wallace For Secretary of State", New Republic, CXI ( November 20, 1944), p. 465; New York Times, November 4, 1944. Russell Lord notes that Roosevelt first told Wallace of the cabinet posts open on August 29 and "Wallace chose Commerce." Perhaps Lord, as is true at many points in his work, has confused time and place. My interview with C. B. Baldwin and Wallace's letters to Roosevelt suggest that the Vice President made no clear choice for the Commerce post until after the elections. Lord, Wallaces of Iowa, pp. 543-44.
