Just prior to the second installment of the War-to-End-All-Wars was to begin, George Creel (1876 - 1953), America's first official censor from World War I, wrote this article for the editors of COLLIER'S MAGAZINE explaining why he believed that censorship in an open society cannot work and why it failed during the First World War:

"For two years I rode herd on the press, trying to enforce the concealment demanded by the Army and Navy... By way of adding the magnitude of the task, it was not only the news columns that had to be watched. What good for the city desk to suppose transport sailings and troops movements when the society columns contained every detail in the account of the wedding of an Army lieutenant or a Navy captain."
