The Centralization of Activities in the Chemical Warfare Service A year after American entrance into the war, the Bureau of Mines, Medical Department, Ordnance Department, Signal Corps, Corps of Engineers, and AEF were sharing the responsibility for chemical warfare. The War Department had made an attempt in October 1917 to co-ordinate the activity by creating a Gas Service of the Army, headed by an Engineer colonel, Charles C. Potter, and composed of Medical, Ordnance, and Chemical Service Section officers.

In November 1919 the CWS established an officers' training school at Lakehurst, where shortly afterwards the First Gas Regiment was stationed. 78 During the twenty months in which the United States was involved in World War I, the Bureau of Mines and the Army built up the largest organization of scientists ever assembled in this country, perhaps in the world.
