Abstract. Free string field operators are constructed for the open
bosonic string in the light cone gauge in any dimension. These are
naturally localized by the center of mass coordinate. Relative to
this localization they are shown to have a causal commutator provided
there are no tachyons. For the critical string in d=26 the result
still holds if the tachyon is suppressed. We also show a causal
commutator relative to the "string light cone".
