Naval Institute Foundation

Everett “Tuck” Weaver, who served under Gene Fluckey in the USS Barb (SS-220) during World War II, is a 1940 graduate of the University of Illinois. He later served as Chairman and Director of Amcol International.

In addition to underwriting the Fluckey biography, the Paul Bechtner Foundation is also assisting the Naval Institute Press to publish Paul Stillwell's upcoming book Submarine Stories, and has provided generous support to the Institute's oral history program.

For information on opportunities to support upcoming Institute history projects, please contact Bill MacIntosh at (410) 295-1056 or [email protected] .

Photo Archives Wish List

A critical component of the Naval Institute's educational and outreach mission is to maintain its archives of nearly half a million images—the largest private collection of naval photography in the world. To provide widespread access to the collection and to produce high-quality prints at a reasonable cost, the photo library staff requests your assistance to secure the following items and services:

DVD burner
Flat large-screen monitors
Laptop computer
Heavy-duty 5-drawer file cabinets
Rolling file cabinet

Your financial support in obtaining these items is greatly appreciated. All gifts to the Naval Institute are tax-deductible. For more information, please contact archivist Janis Jorgensen at (410) 295-1022 or [email protected] .
