12 Goldthwaite Dorr records that General Orders 37 was issued from the Chief of Staff's office by General McNarney without judge Patterson's knowledge. Secretary Stimson was preparing for a trip overseas at the moment and apparently approved the order without discussing it or without realizing that his Under Secretary disapproved of it. When Secretary Stimson returned, neither General Somervell nor Under Secretary Patterson were then disposed to raise the issue again. Dorr, Memorandum Notes, pp. 48-49.

19 Goldthwaite Dorr subsequently observed about the New Developments Division: "So far as I had an impression, it was that the main value of the Division lay in making more effective Ed Bowles' exceptional technical ability, imagination, and drive. Like most organizational matters it reduced itself in the last analysis primarily to a question of personnel." Memorandum Notes, p. 56.
