Government Printing Office publication for the Federal Depository Library:

Excerpts: The New Deal marked the beginning of the modern federal government, and it refocused attention upon the Presidency due to Franklin D. Roosevelt?s charisma and energy. The executive branch increased in size and complexity as the President centralized decision-making. For example, the Bureau of the Budget was placed more firmly under presidential control by its transfer from the Treasury Department to the Executive Office of the President. The entire federal bureaucracy expanded as Roosevelt?s Democratic administrations created program after program in an attempt to stimulate the economy. New agencies were created whose initials, such as the WPA, NRA, and CCC, were likened to alphabet soup, and the number of civilian government employees in the capital doubled between 1929 and 1940.
