Board of War Communications
- The Board of War Communications was a federal agency established by executive order on 24 September 1940 to coordinate the use of the radio, telegraph, and telephone during a war emergency. After Pearl Harbor, the board, composed of the chair of the Federal Communications Commission, the chief of the Army Signal Corps, the director of Naval Communications, and representatives from the State Department and Treasury, was empowered to establish priorities and use, control, or close any communications service deemed necessary for the war effort. It ceased operation in 1947.See also World War II.
