ITU Centenary

 

Stamp from French Southern and Antarctic TerritoriesThe centenary of the ITU was celebrated with postage stamps from around the world. Most of these were issued on 17 May 1965 and showed the special centenary design.

 

The Plenipotentiary Conference was held in Montreux and a special commemorative ceremony took place in Paris.

 

ITU published a book on the history of international co-operation in the field of telecommunications: From semaphore to satellite. It also gives a good description of the scientific progress that was made.
