New Chief of Radio Regulations


W. J. (Bill) Wilson, 46, has replaced W. A. Caton as Chief of the Radio Regulations Division of the Government's Telecommunications Policy and Administration Bureau.


The Bureau was recently transferred from the Department of Transport to the Department of the Postmaster General.


A native of Ottawa, Mr. Wilson was formerly Superintendent of Radio Regulations Engineering. He takes over from Mr. Caton who retired last June after more than 44 years of service in radio communications.


Mr. Wilson graduated from Queen's University and began his engineering career in the Northern Electric Company, Montreal.


In 1947, he joined the Marine Radio Service of the Department of Transport and seven years later transferred to the Radio Regulations Division to look after many of the engineering aspects of the use of radio in Canada, including space communication.
