Abstract

After the European War came to an end it became apparent that there were literally hundreds of thousands of scientific research documents which had been written both by Allied and by Axis scientists but which had never been generally circulated due to their confidential character. On 12 June 1945 President Harry Truman issued an executive order charging the Office of the Publication Board, U.S. Department of Commerce, with dissemination of this information.
