Historical Note:

The Navy Industrial Accounting Officers Course started in 1943. The course enrolled officers who were on active duty for four months of special training in industrial accounting. Instruction was by the case method, supplemented by field trips to naval and privately operated shipyards. Instruction was primarily provided by Harvard Business School faculty members, who were assisted by visits to the school from Navy Accounting Officers and Navy Civilian Accountants. Students learned the principles of Navy Industrial Accounting, business industrial accounting, product organization and control, personnel problems, procurement problems, and cost analysis. The goal of the program was to prepare students for work as accounting officers or cost inspectors for Navy Yards and Naval Districts.

Scope and Content Note:

The collection consists of four folders containing a class outline, examinations, registration materials (all from 1944) and the Navy's summary of the course, prepared in 1945.
