A Culture of Literacy and Scholarly Pursuits

The US Navy has a deep rooted culture of literary and scholarly pursuits born out of the need for self-sufficiency. While at sea for months at a time with very little communication from home, naval officers had a need for a well rounded education to help make necessary decisions. World War II helped to further this tradition as many academics were pressed into military service. The tradition stretches from shipboard libraries in the early US Navy to those who have served in the Navy and went on to become authors and historians. 

Writings range from tales of the sea and biographies of famous naval officers by Herman Melville and James Fennimore Cooper, to books on Naval Strategy by Alfred Mahan. The author James Mitchner was a contributor to the US Naval Administrative Histories of World War II, most likely the section on the Pacific. The Navy has also produced many historians that have made major contributions to naval history. Samuel Eliot Morrison comes to mind as well as William Sims. Our collections include many volumes written by both Navy officers and enlisted men, too many to list, and even a certificate for William Sims’ 1921 Pulitzer Prize in History. We also have a few collections of naval personnel who were book collectors and donated them to our library; of note are the George Henry Preble Collection  and the Rodgers Family Collection . срочный займ без проверок
