Abstract : The US Congress, in 1945, enacted legislation which authorized the Kermit Roosevelt Fund and established in the War Department a Board of Trustees to implement and administer the exchange program for the purpose of fostering a better understanding and a closer relationship between the military forces of the United States and those of the United Kingdom by sponsoring lectures or courses of instruction....' The initial exchange of British and American lecturers under the auspices of the Kermit Roosevelt Fund took place in 1947, with six colleges participating, three each in England and the United States. Since that date the lecturer exchange has taken place essentially in the original format with changes necessary only to accommodate the increase in the number of military colleges in the respective military establishments. Eleven colleges participated in the 1978 program.
