Name of creator
The United States Atlantic Fleet was established under one command in 1906. During 1906-1921 the title "Commander in Chief, Atlantic Fleet" was in continuous use. On 1 February 1941, General Order 143 reestablished the title and recognized the United States Fleet into three separate fleets (Atlantic, Pacific and Asiatic). The Order further stated each fleet would be under the command of a full admiral.
