Then came the time to dissolve the Radiation Laboratory. This was September and October of 1945. It was decided by Colonel Marchetti [5. 1 ] to form a research branch for the Signal Corps up here in Cambridge, which ultimately became the Air Force Cambridge Research Laboratories [5. 2 ]. We were part of the Army Air Corps then, and the Li’l Abner radar program was assigned to the Army Air Corps. [The Army Air Force would become an independent branch of the armed forces, the Air Force, in September 1947.] Marchetti was going to be in charge of this. I guess he was a Major at the time.
