Custodial History

This record group was organized and created as a discrete body by the former Curator, Naval Historical Collection. The addresses were collected and brought together, having emanated from no particular organic body or administrative sector. Prior to 1969 and the creation of the Naval Historical Collection, addresses and inventories were maintained by the College Archivist.
