Walker was widely considered to be Franklin Roosevelts most trusted and important aide. From 1933, after Walker played an instrumental role in his election, until Roosevelts death in 1945, Walker held a variety of posts in the Roosevelt administration: coordinating secretary for the newly created New Deal agencies, Postmaster General during the war years, as well as national chairman of the Democratic Party.
