The Navy Department Library, founded in 1800 by the executive order of President John Adams, promotes the operational effectiveness of the United States Navy through the support of strategic planning, the education of naval personnel and the nation, and the inculcation of pride in the heritage of the naval service. By acquiring, organizing, preserving, and providing access, through reference services and Internet outreach, to pertinent books, manuscripts, and other textual sources, the Navy Department Library enhances and enriches the understanding of naval and maritime history, customs, and traditions. Library History

The Navy Department Library traces its roots to a letter dated 31 March 1800 from President John Adams to Secretary of the Navy Benjamin Stoddert directing him to establish a library that would contain "the best writing...on the theory and practice of naval architecture, navigation, gunnery...." From that beginning, the Library's collections have grown to 170,934 books, 343,799 manuscripts, as well as thousands of periodicals and government documents, with an emphasis on naval, military, and nautical history including foreign navies. The Library is home to the most comprehensive collection of historical literature on the United States Navy. One of the few major military historical libraries open to the public, the library serves an international audience. It provides resources vital to the writing and publishing of naval history, as well as information relating to the needs of today's US Navy. The Navy Department Library joined the Federal Depository Library Program in 1895. The library's older holdings are included in the National Union Catalog of Pre-1956 Imprints , a set of 754 volumes, compiled from 1968 to 1981. The library uses the Library of Congress Classification system, and employs OCLC (Online Computer Library Center) services to assist in cataloging and interlibrary loan. The publicly accessible interface to OCLC is Worldcat, which allows researchers to search for items and determine which libraries, including the Navy Department Library, they are located in. The Library's catalog is online. Individual highlights of the collection include the US Navy's first signal book, Thomas Truxtun's Instructions, Signals and Explanations... (1797); David Porter's signal book (1809); rare Confederate and Union signal books; calling cards collected by John Paul Jones in Russia; hundreds of unpublished World War II administrative and cryptological histories; translations of war diaries from various German Navy headquarters; material captured on the German submarine U-505 in 1944; and a collection of ship half-hull models. For further information see "History of the Navy Department Library" which contains links to online manuscripts and published sources about the library. Subjects Emphasized

Circulation Policy

Personnel stationed or employed on the Washington Navy Yard may borrow materials for one month. The Library participates in interlibrary loan. Rare, Special Collection, and Reference books, as well as bound periodicals do not circulate. The Library reserves the right to refuse to circulate or permit the reproduction of any items considered unique or fragile. Items over 100 years old are not available for interlibrary loan. Faxed requests for interlibrary loan are not accepted. Reference Assistance and Policy

The Library provides limited telephone, in person and written reference assistance. Detailed questions requiring in-depth research must be conducted in person at the library or by employing a commercial research service. Typically, the staff will suggest possible sources of information, such as a book or archival facility, to assist patrons in conducting their own research. A careful examination of the NHHC's Frequently Asked Questions will provide answers to many questions. Simple questions such as "When was USS America (CV-66) commissioned?" or "Who was the Secretary of the Navy in 1938?" can sometimes be answered via telephone. Hours of Operation

Glenn Helm, our former Director Navy Department Library and Senior Reference Librarian, for Naval History & Heritage Command who sadly passed away last year, loved sharing his enthusiasm for naval heritage and history. His dedication to educating people about the U.S. Navy and its traditions was recognized by the 'Superior Civilian Service Award' We proudly share the text here:

The
Department of the Navy
Superior Civilian Service Award
is awarded
to
Mr. Glenn E. Helm
For services as set forth in the following citation

For superior civilian service as demonstrated by exemplary performance, outstanding achievements, and exceptional contributions to the Naval History and Heritage Command as the Navy Department Library's Director and ultimately as the Senior Reference Librarian from 14 January 1991 to 30 November 2020. During an impressive 30 year career, Mr. Glenn Helm did more than most to build the public's understanding, trust, and support for America's Navy. A consummate gentleman and thoughtful leader, he distinguished himself through his untiring work ethic and the exceptional pursuit in developing and improving library services in a highly professional manner. Among his accomplishments, Glenn's unmatched understanding of the Library materials' vast scope and, more importantly, how Navy history and Navy historical records supported the Navy and the warfighter drove his passion for the betterment of others. He cultivated relationships with a vast network of officers and scholars, who in turn, donated unique cruise books, Navy technical publications, and hard to find periodicals and materials to the library. With an unrelenting drive, he secured materials from other libraries, personal collections, estates, and by literally scouring the country's used and antiquarian book shops looking for unique items – often procuring those rare gems at his own expense, so our Navy and the American public would always have access to them. He transformed the Navy Department Library into the most extensive naval history library in the world, but that was not enough for Glenn. He then ensured the world had unfettered access to it by creating the command's website and then led volunteers in digitizing, preparing, and posting material. Additionally, he championed the cause to properly protect the rarest of items by converting a water sprinkler system into a state of the art fire suppression system. Glenn became the pre-eminent subject matter expert and answered requests for information from the Secretary of the Navy to walk-in patrons and provided comprehensive research assistance to major media outlets including the Washington Post, the New York Times, and The Wall Street Journal, which resulted in a greater public understanding, trust, and support for America's Navy. He always went out of his way to assist researchers and ensure they had all the relevant information to answer their questions. With his passing, we have not only lost a friend and a colleague, but his incredible 30-years of cumulative knowledge of naval history and historiography. These contributions reflect great credit upon himself, Naval History and Heritage Command, and are in keeping with the highest traditions of the United States Naval Service.

Register of Patients at Naval Hospital Washington DC 1814 With The Names of American Wounded From The Battle of Bladensburg
"The 1814 register provides a unique glimpse of the aftermath of battle and a record of the lives of individual sailors, marines, soldiers, and civilians from their admission to discharge. Naval regulations required all hospitals and ships afloat to keep a register of patients. Today this register, which covers the period 2 June to 30 December 1814, is one of our most important primary sources for the names and units of American casualties at Bladensburg."

"Constitution's 1812 quarter bill assigned a midshipman to command fourteen of her fifteen gun-deck 24-pounders with a typical gun crew of twelve men and a powder boy. The 1st Captain primed and aimed the gun while the 2nd Captain tended the firing lock and slowmatch and fired. 1st, 2nd, and 3rd Spongers and Rammers relieved one another at those strenuous tasks to keep up the rate of fire. One man brought shot from the racks; another tended the train tackle to hold the gun in place while loading. If needed, some men were designated to take stations as boarders ('B, Br'), to man the pumps, or to fight fire. Guns were normally manned on the engaged side only; if a ship engaged two opponents, gun crews had to be divided."

"Crucial to winning the War of 1812, and with it the free exercise of our sovereign rights, was the Battle of Lake Erie on September 10, 1813. Unhappily, the Battle of Lake Erie, too, despite its enormous contribution to our heritage, shares the same unfilled recognition accorded the war in which it played so glorious a part. To the battle must also be added the almost hopeless challenge of building the Fleet in the Wilderness and the subsequent land actions in the Thames River area of western Ontario. Taken together, they constitute a triumph of the human spirit seldom equaled in man's relentless struggles for freedom. These achievements will stand for so long as perseverance, patriotism, and valor are honored among men."

I've been trying to figure out when Rear Admiral William Mack Angas met Rear Admiral Logan C. Ramsey, the original owner of the navigation watch.In the navigation booklet from 1932 Motor boating magazine W.M. Angas lists L.C. Ramsey as his friend and thanks him for his help.There are 3 year books that have information and pictures of W.M. Angas from 1917 to 1919 of his time at MIT.One of the books is MIT,s contributions to the WW1 war effort.William Mack Angas was commissioned Lt.Jg. C.E.C. U.S.N. 27 Dec. 1917 and assigned to the United States Naval Academy as a navigation instructor the 1st of July 1918.Midshipman Logan C. Ramsey was still in the Academy at this time but graduated that year.I'm still trying to figure out if Cmdr P.V.H. Weems, the inventor of the watch was also an instructor at the Academy at this timehttp://web.mit.edu/technique/www/scans/1919_War_Record.pdf I'm also missing a lot of Cmdr.P.V.H. Weems Naval record from 1912 to 1919.
