Lighthouse Service in World War I

As seen from this presidential proclamation, the Lighthouse Service played a role in the First World War.  Most of the lighthouse tenders and a few lighthouse stations, all on the east coast, were placed under the jurisdiction of the War and Navy Departments.  This particular document came from National Archives Record Group 45 – Naval Records Collection of the Office of Naval Records and Library [ONRL], Entry 464b.
