Robert Lovett (Assistant Secretary of War for Air)
John J. McCloy (of the War Department)
Harvey Hollister Bundy (liaison to the Office of Scientific Research and Development)
want to resign their positions in September 1945?
The context from my perspective is I am researching why the United States created the policy they did after WWII.
In this case I am looking at the so-called "wise men" Acheson, Kennan, Harriman, McCloy, Lovett and Bohlen who came up with the policy of containment with regard to dealing with the USSR.
McCloy and Lovett were the only Republicans and I wonder if their earlier threat to resign along with Bundy had something to do with President Truman's initial policies. Source is the wikipedia page on Robert A. Lovett under Politics.
