DK3636—CHAPTER 1—10/10/2006—21:31—VELU—13747—XML MODEL C – pp. 3–48 Public Administration and the American Republic 13 The Bureau of the Budget and the General Accounting Ofﬁce were both created, though the former was a part of the Department of the Treasury until the creation of the Executive Ofﬁce of the President in 1939. These two organizations personiﬁed the PI model with its emphasis on scientiﬁc management through staff units manned by experts. The Bureau of the Budget, later the Ofﬁce of Management and Budget, was an early example of the administrative infrastructure that would later support what some termed the “imperial presidency” (Reedy 1970; Schlesinger 1973).
The American Economic Association, for example, created in 1885, espoused the goal of positive aid from the state to help meet broader societal needs. Among its founding members were Andrew Carnegie, Woodrow Wilson, and Henry Adams, who shared an interest in expanding public responsibility (Commager 1950). At the local level, social movements such as settlement houses were fertile grounds for what was later considered local public administration. As Cam Stivers pointedly noted, these tended to be lost in ofﬁcial histories that emphasized management rather than social policies (Stivers 2000).
Efforts such as those by the University of Chicago’s “1313” Public Administration Center (Brownlow 1958; Stone and Stone 1975) often reﬂected the dedication of speciﬁc scholars such as Charles Merriam. Unfortunately, the university connection often failed to survive the key actors in academe. Nevertheless, the grouping of such organizations had a high payoff for creating and maintaining networks within the profession. The locus of such activities would eventually move to Washington, DC by the 1960s, thus reﬂecting the rise of federal programs in all levels of government and the concomitant need for networking in Washington.
