When the 1945 surrender document was signed in Tokyo Bay on board the broad decks of the battleship MISSOURI, they were not merely bringing an end to a war - but simultaneously closing thousands of whorehouses across the United States. History has it that beginning in 1942, when the nation transitioned to a war footing, thousands of military training camps began to spring-up in the most unlikely locations - and each one was usually able to support a brothel or two. When the war came to a close the local communities that reluctantly tolerated these establishments were relieved to know that the prostitutes would be leaving when the camps were shut down.

America entered the post-war era with with strict laws regarding prostitution - and the men and women who made up the brain trust of this trade had to make numerous changes if their businesses were to survive. This article reports on the steps they had taken.
