Flowers left for Josephus Daniels
Josephus Daniels: Sir, you will be remembered as appointed by United States President Woodrow Wilson to serve as 41st Secretary of the Navy during World War I and was also a close friend and supporter of President Franklin Roosevelt. As the nation's 41st Secretary of the Navy, you believed in government ownership of armorplate factories, and of telephones and telegraphs. At the end of the First World War, you made a serious attempt to have the Navy permanently control all radio transmitters in the United States. If you had succeeded amateur radio would have ended, and it is likely that radio broadcasting would have been substantially delayed, happy 150th birthday!
