Edward M. House and the Governors 65
but there is no evidence of any great change in the institution
that his influence wrought directly.
To the extent that his health and his prolonged absences from
the state would permit, Edward M. House helped the governors
become oriented and aided them when they called on him in
selecting appointees and in various other matters. It was his policy
to avoid contacts with the legislature and with administrative
officers other than the governor, except in matters pertaining to
appointments. With the great political power he wielded as the
successful director of gubernatorial campaigns, he must have had
considerable influence, but his influence was exercised so adroitly
that even those affected did not understand it and the historian
finds it all but impossible to delineate its course.
