Description

From General Statement: "Beginning with an investigation to develop the best type of gas mask, the scope of the work extended until it included researches relating to a wide range of devices, such as different types of poisonous and irritating gases and smokes, smoke screens, gas shells and gas bombs, signal lights, and incendiary bombs. When the results obtained through this research were to be applied by the War Department, the Director of the Bureau of Mines cooperated in the selection of men to have charge of manufacture or further development, recommending chemists who subsequently received commissions in the Army. Perhaps the greatest result of the research work has been the demonstration of the value of the services that the chemist and chemical engineer can render in time of need and the recognition of chemical investigations as a necessary function of the Government."
