    For the annex
    I suggest a Veterans Committee to backfill for the telecom deadball era. Like Alexander Graham Bell and Thomas Watson. And Rutherford B. Hayes, who had the first phone installed in the White House. And the great great great grandfather of data comm, Alexander Bain, inventor of the "electric printing telegraph" (aka fax machine).
