Johnson, Louis

Johnson, Louis (Arthur)

(1891–1966) administrator; born in Roanoke, Va. A West Virginia lawyer and army colonel in World War I, he commanded the American Legion (1932–33). As assistant secretary of war (1937–40), he modernized the army. Finance chairman for President Truman's 1948 campaign, he became secretary of defense (1949–50), but his plans for restructuring the military forces angered navy admirals and the administration, forcing his return to law practice.
