The main purpose of this paper is to exhibit the decisive role that order continuity plays in the structure of locally compact Boolean algebras as well as in that of atomic topological Boolean algebras. We prove that the following three conditions are equivalent for a topological Boolean algebra B: (1) B is compact; (2) B is locally compact, Boolean complete, order continuous; (3) B is Boolean complete, atomic and order continuous. Note that under the discrete topology any Boolean algebra is locally compact.
