Early records of the U.S. Naval War College

Scope & content

This record group is comprised of correspondence, memoranda, lists, contracts, inventories, and plans regarding the establishment, administration and curriculum of the Naval War College, new building construction, and items relating to the establishment of a naval coaling station somewhere in the Narragansett Bay, R.I. Of particular interest may be correspondence with discussions about merging the NWC with the Naval Torpedo Station in 1888 and the possible removal of NWC to Washington, D.C. in 1910-1911.
