American diplomat and politician who served as the 34th Governor of Indiana (1933-1937), administrator of the Federal Security Agency (1939-1945), chairman of the War Manpower Commission (1942-1945), high commissioner to the Philippines (1945-1946), and ambassador to the Philippines (1946-1947).
McNutt fell ill in 1955 and decided to travel on a cruise to the Philippines to recover in the warm climate after a surgery. His condition only worsened and after arriving in Manila he flew to New York for better care. He died on 24 March 1955 in New York City, aged 63.
Sy Scholfield cites McNutt's mother as quoted in Paul V. McNutt and the Age of FDR by Dean J. Kotlowski (Indiana University Press, 2015), p. 13: "Paul Vories McNutt was born on July 19, 1891 ... Ruth Neely McNutt, Paul's mother, saw her first and only offspring as a “child of destiny,” although not necessarily bound for the White House. Indeed, as her son launched his campaign to succeed President Franklin D. Roosevelt, Ruth had trouble remembering the precise time of Paul's birth. It had occurred around four o'clock in the afternoon, but the difficulty of the labor seemingly had clouded her memory."
