  Science and Technology Policy Yearbook: Chapter 27: US Science Policy and Science Advice, 1840-1878
Although Henry never ceased thinking of himself as a research scientist and educator, thereafter his chief roles were those of science administrator and de facto advisor to both the executive and legislative branches of government on all aspects of science and technology.
Although some Administrations were more friendly to science than others (the Fillmore Administration was particularly active scientifically), it was often the individual Secretary who decided the role of science in his area of responsibility.
The standard history of science and the federal government is A. Hunter Dupree, Science in the Federal Government: A History of Policies and Activities to 1940 (Cambridge, MA: Harvard University Press, 1957).
