1942 ORIGINAL ARCHIVE OF PAPERS RELATED TO THE EDUCATION OF A NAVY RADIO ENGINEER AND INTELLIGENCE OFFICER AT THE NEWLY OPENED HARVARD NAVAL TRAINING SCHOOL WHO WE BELIEVE GOES ON TO A NOTED CAREER AS AN AUTHOR AND EXPERT ON MARYLAND MARITIME HISTORY
Good+. 1942. On offer is an absolutely super archive and significant historical group of typed and manuscript papers, mostly original, copies pertaining to official Navy memos and documents relating to the education received by Lieutenant Alexander C. Brown C-V(S) USNR of Alexandria Virginia at the newly created and opened [July 1st 1942] Harvard Naval Training School. [We note: There is a fascinating and very strong likelihood this Lt. Brown could very well be renowned and prolific author Alexander Crosby Brown of Maryland maritime tales and non fiction but we cannot make the final connection.] This group is significant on a number of levels. While the earliest date we find in a document dated September 1942 titled Memo 48. Most of the other materials likely come before that date and thusly this archive reveals the very complex education in radio engineering and foreign intelligence as evidenced by a portion of the papers called Correspondence Course in Foreign Intelligence with other sections headed Codes and Ciphers, Tactics, Radio Engineering, Charts and even a Hints to Newcomers memo. The papers are all loose with hints of having once been in binders or duo tangs thusly we cannot attest to whether the 3 inch stack of papers is complete though it does appear very comprehensive.
