Hide Profile

The Naval History Society was established in New York in 1912 "for the purpose of publishing and preserving manuscripts, documents, and writings relating to our naval history, naval art and science, and the surroundings and experiences of seamen in general and of American seamen in particular." Its Collections began with the donation in 1915 of John Sanford Barnes's personal collections by his son, Col. James Barnes. These included library materials now cataloged in the XN classification in the New-York Historical Society Library, artifacts now included in the New-York Historical Society's museum collections, as well as the manuscript materials described in Series 1-52 of this Collection. The entire collection was donated to the New-York Historical Society, where the Naval History Society collections and office were then located, in 1925. The Society ceased its publication and collecting activities in 1936.
