Major General Enoch Crowder, who served as the Judge Advocate General from 1911 to 1921, took a leave of absence from his duties as the Army's top uniformed lawyer to oversee the implementation of the Selective Service Act of 1917. In this photo, taken at the U.S. Senate Building on 27 July 1918, Crowder (second from left, front) poses with officers who assisted him at the second drawing of draft numbers.
