Instructions for Gunners' Examination in the Field Artillery; September 1, 1917. John S. Hammond, Dawson Olmstead.
New York: E. P. Dutton & Company, 1917. Presumed First Edition, First printing thus. Hardcover. Pocket-sized (4.75 inches by 6.25 inches), 142, [2] Pages. Illustrations. Maps. Figures. Corners of some pages bumped. Cover has slight wear and soiling. The authors were Inspector Instructors in the U. S. Army Field Artillery. One of the authors rose to the rank of Major General in the United States Army. Dawson was Chief Signal Officer during the major portion of World War II, and presided over a momentous buildup of the Signal Corps. With a budget that grew from nine million in 1941, to more than five billion in 1943, Olmstead turned to both the Signal Corps laboratories and the private sector to meet the demands of total war. With the assistance of an advisory council of reserve officers and a civilian advisory board comprised of key figures in the communications industry, Olmstead brought the Signal Corps to wartime footing. Accomplishments included activating hundreds of Signal units and training thousands of officers and enlisted personnel in a reorganized Signal School. Olmstead's illustrious career blossomed in the 1920s and flourished during the depression years of the 1930s. However, it was during World War II that Olmstead's talent and vision won him the Distinguished Service Medal. His colleague may have been the John Hammond who also rose to the rank of General and became the owner of the New York Rangers.
