    Complete Archive of Personnel Records, 1913-1934, For a Annapolis Graduate and Naval Officer.
    -With documents dating from 1913 until 1934. Assorted sizes, mainly 8" x 10.5". Bound in a file folder via two holes punched at the head of each document.
    -Very good.

    A fantastic archive tracing the career of Jesse H. Smith, from his graduation from Annapolis in 1913 through being detached from duty as commander of the destroyer U.S.S. Barry (DD-248). Smith either commanded or served aboard a number of ships (mainly destroyers) including the U.S.S. Herbert, U.S.S. O'Brien, U.S.S. Leonidas, U.S.S. Charleston, and several others. Taken in whole this is a fantastic archive that would be worthy of further research.

    We had a wonderful time in New York during the October 2013 Historical Manuscripts auction that featured my mother’s papers collected during her tenure as Martin Luther King, Jr.’s secretary. In fact, the entire experience from beginning to end has been a pleasure.
