The Minister of Colonization was the head of the Ministry of Colonization, and made the main decisions in regards to the Dispersal Project. The first and only known Minister of Colonization was Hyrum Graff.
After the end of the Third Formic War, the organization was created and former International Fleet colonel Hyrum Graff became the first Minister of Colonization.
Starways Congress Era
In the era of Starways Congress, the Ministry of Colonization administered colonies that had been granted continuing status, but were not yet independent members of the Hundred Worlds.
MinCol seems to have later been dissolved and incorporated directly into Starways Congress, as the organization was not mentioned as the administrator of non-independent colony worlds such as Path and Lusitania.
