Father of the Nuclear Navy

RICKOVER, Hyman George  (1900-1986).  American military Naval Officer,born of a poor Jewish family in Russia. Worked on the WWII Manhattan Atomic Bomb Project, known as The Father of the Nuclear Navy.  He was responsible for the overall design and development of the Nautilus, the world’s first nuclear powered submarine (1954).  Promoted to Admiral.  Very lengthy typed letter signed, 3 full pages on the imprinted letterhead of U.S.S. Henry L. Stimson. At Sea, N. Atlantic, 4 July 1966 to Mr. Morgan (US Congressman).  Admiral Rickover writes in part: “We have just successfully completed the first sea trials of our thirty-eighth Polaris nuclear submarine. The USS Henry L. Stimson was built by the Electric Boat Division of the General Dynamics Corporation, Groton, Connecticut. We also have in operation twenty-three attack type nuclear submarines, making a total of sixty-one.”  Rickover in the next two lengthy paragraphs writes about the background  of Henry L. Stimson and mentions that Theodore Roosevelt in 1906 appointed Stimson to his first public office that of U.S. Attorney general for the Southern District of New York.    In the balance of the letter Rickover continues to describe Stimson’s qualifications and basically writes a complete biography of Henry L. Stimson.  Fantastic content on every page and signed in ink at the end “H.G. Rickover.” The letter is in excellent condition.
