Richard G. Colbert Papers

Inventory


Series I; Subseries I. Correspondence
14 box(es)
Series I, 17 boxes of Correspondence, consists of letters received and copies of letters sent. It is divided into three subseries: personal, semi-official, and foreign officer correspondence. Correspondents include United States and foreign naval officers, national political leaders, society figures, and family members.

Subseries I, Personal correspondence, 1954-1973, forms the bulk of the series. There are no records documenting Admiral Colbert's youth or his service during World War II. Many of the letters are to family members, in particular, to the admiral's father, Charles F. Colbert, Jr. Most of the correspondence relates to his personal life and travels, family financial matters, and career advancement.

Arrangement: Folders in the series are arranged alphabetically by subject and chronologically by date.

Series I; Subseries II. Correspondence
2 box(es)
Series I, 17 boxes of Correspondence, consists of letters received and copies of letters sent. It is divided into three subseries: personal, semi-official, and foreign officer correspondence. Correspondents include United States and foreign naval officers, national political leaders, society figures, and family members.

Subseries II, Semi-Official correspondence, 1961-1962, 1964-1971, covers the period when Colbert served as commander of the USS BOSTON, commander of Cruiser Destroyer Flotilla Six, Deputy Chief of Staff to the Supreme Allied Commander, Atlantic, and President of the Naval War College. Most of the correspondence focuses on matters associated with various assignments: fleet preparedness, defense, the Soviet maritime threat, SACLANT, and Naval War College policies and programs.

Series I, 17 boxes of Correspondence, consists of letters received and copies of letters sent. It is divided into three subseries: personal, semi-official, and foreign officer correspondence. Correspondents include United States and foreign naval officers, national political leaders, society figures, and family members.

Subseries III, Foreign Officer Correspondence, 1957-1971, treats much of the same time period as semi-official correspondence.

His correspondents include high ranking officers in the navies of Italy, Venezuela, Norway, West Germany, Argentina, Pakistan, France, England, and Brazil, to name a few.
