Description: The Naval Institute tape-records interviews with people who have made history in the naval profession. The interviews are then transcribed, annotated, indexed, and bound. Since the inception of the program in 1969, more than 200 bound volumes have been completed, and interviews have been done to produce dozens more. Typically, the format calls for an entire life history of a career Navy man or woman. The discussion of various tours of duty during the course of a career generally covers a wide range of topics and personalities. There have also been some specialized projects involving early WAVE officers, the Polaris ballistic missile submarine program, Vietnam War prisoners of war, Fleet Admiral Chester Nimitz, and the first black naval officers.
