As part of the funding agreement between the Dictionary of Canadian Biography and the Canadian Museum of History, we invite readers to take part in a short survey.

I’ll take the survey now.

Remind me later.

Don’t show me this message again.

I have already answered the survey.

Organizing for War

A small part of the huge task of organizing the country’s war effort is described in this excerpt from the biography of Ernest John CHAMBERS:

“Possessed of superb interpersonal skills, extensive contacts in the news world, and solid militia and imperial credentials, Chambers was named to the post [of chief press censor], with authority to block any source criticizing military policy, promoting disaffection, aiding the enemy, or otherwise ‘hindering the successful prosecution of the war.’”

To discover more about the roles played by Chambers and other officials, please read these biographies.
