Donor Stories

  • A Commodore to be Missed

    Though the Institute staff has the pleasure of dealing on a daily basis with many outstanding members, authors, and donors, some invariably stand out.  The late Everett “Tuck” Weaver of Winnetka, Illinois, who died in September, is one.  Generous and modest to the extreme,...

  • In His Own Words: John T. Pigott

    I thoroughly enjoy Proceedings and Naval History magazines.  The continuation of their robust health is a major reason why I have, over many years, given as generously to the Naval Institute as I could—and will continue to do so.  I might add that in 1944 I was a commissioning...

  • In His Own Words: David J. Gray

    Understanding history sharpens strategic skills and enables us to function on a higher level.  Our bequest will help underwrite conferences, articles, books and lectures at the Institute’s discretion. By including the Naval Institute in my estate plans, my support will continue beyond...

  • In His Own Words: LT Matthew Hipple, USN

    More than anything else, the Naval Institute is where ideas--not rank--dominate the discourse.  In a world of buzzwords, pet projects, and pop-policy, it's critical to have a strong institution where a JO or NCO's insight counts as much as the think-tank academic or the admiral.

  • In Her Own Words: Ingrid S. Beach

    Between the splendid books offered by the Naval Institute Press and the stirring videos from the “Americans at War” series, I am struck by how well the Institute is keeping abreast of modern technology and incorporating high-profile techniques into its publishing business.  But...

  • A Mother’s Support of her Marine Son: Going...

    Now, more than ever, there is a critical place for an organization such as the Naval Institute that encourages debate on all sides of an issue.  I decided to further support [my son’s] career choice in one of the few ways available to me—by making a gift to the Institute. ...

  • In His Own Words: George W. Carmany III

    Copies of Proceedings attracted my young grandson Charles's attention--warships caught his fancy as they had mine--so the time had come to make an honest man of him.  With help from his grandfather, Charles is now a Naval Institute Member and a sustaining donor.  As the...
