Dr. Boyd L. Nelson died Sunday. He had been chief of the Economic
Studies Division of the Common Carrier Bureau of the FCC from
mid-1960s through the late 1970s. He then held other positions at the
FCC before his retirement in 1982.

At the FCC his most notable achievements were the writing of the
Recommended Decision of the Chief of the Common Carrier Bureau in
Docket 18128, the Private Line Rate Cases, that adopted Fully
Distributed Cost as the costing method of choice. He also mechanized
the production of the Statistics of Communications Common Carriers,
and recruited a very strong staff in Economics and Statistics, many of
whom are still at the FCC.
