Abstract

Abstract (Lang: English):

As the first Secretary of State, Thomas Jefferson gained invaluable cabinet experience, which he used as a model for his own administration. Jefferson forged his own set of cabinet policies and crafted a physical environment to avoid the conflict and pitfalls that plagued his predecessors’ presidencies. This article demonstrates the cabinet’s central role in the ongoing evolution of the executive branch from George Washington to Jefferson and the importance of customs and norms in Early Republic political culture.
