The 1970 Flood Control Act finally authorized the position, but President Nixon hesitated to appoint a secretary because he was considering the creation of an entirely new agency--the Department of Environment and Natural Resources--of which Civil Works would have been a part. It was not until the Ford administration that the president finally filled the position after years of debate. On March 20, 1975, Victor V. Veysey was sworn in as the first Assistant Secretary of the Army for Civil Works, ASA (CW); he served until January 1977. For more information, please see the Civil Works History link.
