Abstract:

The papers consist of pamphlets and other printed matter with some letters, diaries and manuscripts relating to naval affairs. The largest block of material concerns World War I, particularly the questions of the German naval mutiny of 1917, the surrender of the German fleet in November 1918, and the scuttling of its most important units at Scapa Flow in 1919. Also in the collection are circa two thousand postcards showing World War I naval scenes and photographs of American transports.
