Dyer, George Carroll (1898-1987)

Catalog Title: 
Dyer, VAdm. George C., U.S. Navy (Ret.)
Vice Admiral, U.S. Navy (Retired)

 Based on 15 interviews conducted by John T. Mason, Jr., from April 1969 through May 1971. The volume contains 547 pages of interview transcript plus an index. The transcript is copyright 1973 by the U.S. Naval Institute; the restrictions originally placed on the transcript by the interviewee have since been removed.

In the years before and during World War II, Dyer acquired an intimate view of high-level command through his service on the staffs of Admiral James O. Richardson, Ernest J. King, and Richard L. Conolly. And early submariner, Dyer also served in a number of surface ships, including the battleship Arizona, heavy cruiser Indianapolis (with Captain Thomas Kinkaid in command), and light cruiser Astoria (which Dyer commanded). As a flag officer, he commanded Cruiser Division 10; United Nations Blockade and Escort Force (Task Force 95) during the Korean War; Training Command Pacific Fleet, and the Eleventh Naval District. Dyer is the author of Naval Logistics and coauthor of Admiral James O. Richardson's memoir, On the Treadmill to Pearl Harbor.
