W8AKQ log entry for December 8, 1941: 
“WLM QST WLM 400PM Wash DC Dec 8 1941 To all CA signals and amateur radio operators all amateur operation stations including the army amateur radio system are suspended for the present stop….” It continues for almost a full page of the log.
The W8AKQ log collection is just amazing. If you like ham radio history, you will treasure this set. $78 mailed to your door.
Thanks for looking.
