Abstract
The idea of writing a brief history on how Canadian scientific resources were organized and managed in wartime, leading to the development of defence research liaison with the United Kingdom came from Dr. Ken Street, Director of International Research and Development in CRAD Headquarters, Gentlemen like Dr. C.J. MacKenzie of the National Research Council and LCol. W.W. Goforth of the Department of National Defence, whose imagination and enterprise were instrumental in the conception of Defence Research as a necessary fourth service of National Defence, are the forefathers behind the liaison efforts. The creation of the Defence Research Board (DRB) in 1947, the appointment of its first Chairman, Dr. O.M. Solandt, and the establishment shortly thereafter of the Defence Research Liason Office in London under the leadership of Col. G.M. Carrie, are also noteworthy points in the short history of the office we now fondly remember as CDRD(L).
