About William J. Bahr
Bill Bahr is a retired telecommunications executive. A graduate of West Point, he served in the U.S. Army Signal Corps, working in Germany, Cambodia (the U.S. Embassy in Phnom Penh), and Korea before moving into commercial telecommunications. Along with earning three masters degrees and two patents, Bill held marketing/sales directorships at major corporations. His work helped spark the revolution in facsimile machines and the build-out in cellular systems and the internet, with both Bill and his products receiving many public accolades. For example, the prestigious magazine "Electronic Business" headlined one of his product developments as a “Secret Success Story.” The American Management Association heralded this same effort as doing business “Japanese style to beat the Japanese at their own game.” As well, a number of his other efforts have resulted in what the communications industry has called "world-beater" products.
Starting Bill off on a creative career, he developed an innovative solution to a major encryption problem while in Cambodia. A few years later, one of his own, early inventions received notice in many publications, to include "Newsweek” and “Playgirl.” In addition, his innovative mnemonic method “Learn Morse Code in One Hour (or even 10 minutes)!” helped thousands pass amateur-radio 5 word-per-minute code tests — and is now free on-line.
Bill currently lives in Chicagoland and volunteers in a number of community service organizations. He is an active participant in Rotary, VFW, and CHARACTER COUNTS!, where he has served in various leadership roles. In his spare time, Bill unabashedly admires George Washington and studies strategic action. The book “George Washington’s Liberty Key” is a result of Bill’s curiosity and extensive reading about Mount Vernon's Bastille key and the extraordinary, enabling, and ennobling character of George Washington.
