Abstract:

The Industrial College of the Armed Forces ICAF was established 80 years ago in response to a deficiency in the U.S. security environment. It was a shared shortcoming affecting both the War and the Navy Departments. Recognizing this joint problem, the departments decided that Industrial College students should come from various backgrounds. The Army Industrial College, as it was first named, became a successful model for additional joint professional military education institutions.
