Clay, General Lucius, 1897-1977

A military engineer who had worked on dam construction in the United States before the war, Clay acted as manager of the US Army procurement program from 1942, then as a Base Commander in Normandy, then as Deputy Director of the Office of War Mobilization until April 1945 when he moved to Germany as Deputy to EISENHOWER for the military government of Germany. He quickly became convinced that the United States must work to restore civilian government in the occupied zones, and was a major architect of the postwar Federal Government.
