Following the author’s career in Navy research and development related to submarine systems, these historical monographs represent a post-career interest in exploring the history and telling the story of the development and implementation of several submarine or submarine-related technologies. Historical research led to investigation of convoying merchant ships during both World Wars. An interest in sonobuoys brought P.M.S. Blackett and his broad contributions to science, antisubmarine warfare and operations research to the author’s attention.

Several of the papers present the only public record of the creativity of some individual engineers and scientists and their contributions to the United States Navy. In most of the papers submarines provide a common thread. With some exceptions, events of the 20th Century predominate.
