Memorandum for the Special Services Division

(through General Somervell)

August 2, 1943 [Washington, D.C.]

The Secretary of War found at Goose Bay, Labrador, that the Army Extension Courses had not been established. This, like the Pribilof Islands, Ascension Island, and other isolated posts, is exactly the type of station which needs the Army Extension Courses.1 I do not understand why they have not already been established at Goose Bay.

Please inform me.
