Immediate Source of Acquisition:

No accession number. Gift of Professor Robert Albion; received: 1959.

Provenance:

Memorandum from Professor Albion (donor) states: "... This is a carbon typescript of which there are probably not more than one or two other copies extant. This apparently came from the old Bureau of Engineering Library -- which merged with C. R. to form Bureau of Ships in 1940. When I was at the Dept. during the War, I secured some of the surplus material which was going to be thrown away. It also has two appendices on different types, Sub-chasers and Destroyer Program -- with statistics and pictures. This is really a valuable source for naval shipbuilding ... " A copy of this memo is in the curatorial file.
