Robert Wickliffe Woolley was Director of the United States Mint from March 1915 – July 1916.  He was an early critic of American fuel consumption.  These photos are a wonderful look into the past.  His workspace includes a phone, an inbox, inkwell with pen, paper, and a desk mat.  Just the basics to do business back then.
