John Wesley Snyder

John Wesley Snyder (June 21, 1895 – October 8, 1985) was an American businessman and senior federal government official.Thanks to a close personal friendship with President Harry S Truman, he became Secretary of the Treasury in the Truman administration.

He holds the distinction of being the first native-born Arkansan to hold a US Cabinet post.Historian Alonzo Hamby emphasizes Snyder's conservatism, stating that he was openly skeptical of New Dealism, broad-gauged social programs, and intellectuals who believed the economy could be run from Washington.
