Biography / Administrative history
At the beginning of the Second World War, the Foreign Exchange Control Board was established to centralize transactions in foreign moneys. In order to fund the war effort, foreign money was rationed to ensure that the government would be able to pay for imports from the United States. This system of rationing survived until 1951 when the Foreign Exchange Control Board was disbanded. RG19 General Inventory
