About the Naval Historical Foundation

Ninety years ago, U.S. Navy Commodore Dudley Knox wrote an article titled “Our Vanishing History and Traditions.” His criticism of “glaring deficiencies” in collecting and preserving the Navy’s records caused a stir, and in 1926, resulted in creation of the Naval Historical Foundation under the sponsorship of the Secretary of the Navy. From its initial focus on safeguarding the material culture of the Navy, the foundation has developed into an educational non profit organization that preserves and promotes the full range of naval history. Today, besides supporting the Navy’s historical programs (particularly, the Navy Museum and the Navy Art Collection, which are components of the Naval History and Heritage Command), the foundation collects the oral histories and memoirs of veterans from World War II to the Cold War, publishes monographs, and sponsors conferences on naval history topics.
