Charles D. Ferris

Charles D. Ferris (born 1931) served as Chairman of the Federal Communications Commission from October 17, 1977 to February 4, 1981. While most scholars look the term of Reagan appointee Mark S. Fowler as the beginning of telecommunications deregulation, deregulation actually began with Ferris. The most significant effect Ferris had on the FCC was shifting the Commission's reasoning from legal and technical to an economic one [1]
