"Dwight D. Eisenhower President of the United States of America, To all who shall see these presents, Greeting:


Know ye, that reposing special trust and confidence in the Integrity, Fidelity, and Ability of Thomas Coggeshall, of Connecticut, I have nominated, and by and with the advice and consent of the Senate, do appoint him a Member of the Renegotiation Board…"


President Eisenhower's nominee to the Renegotiation Board, Thomas Coggeshall (1891-1975) of Greens Farms, Connecticut, later became the chairman of the board. The committee had been established under the Renegotiation Act of 1951. By providing oversight, it ensured that contractors working with federal agencies like NASA, the Atomic Energy Commission, and the Department of Defense completed contracts in a timely manner and did not excessively charge. Coggeshall resigned from his chairmanship of the Renegotiation Board in mid-April 1961 during the Kennedy administration.
