Former Institute Leader Honored
Four generations of the late Captain Joseph K. Taussig Jr.'s family were on hand to dedicate the executive suite at Beach Hall to the former Naval Institute head who embodied the mission of our professional association. Throughout his life, Captain Taussig demonstrated physical and moral courage second to none. He challenged the conventional wisdom whenever he found it necessary—always for the good of the sea services. The Taussig Suite contains memorabilia from his remarkable life and career.
In addition, the Captain Joseph K. Taussig Jr. Fund has been established to honor Joe's singular contributions to the sea services by advancing the Naval Institute's educational mission. Tax-deductible gifts in Taussig's name enable the Institute to honor him in a manner fitting one who made so many unique and lasting contributions to the Institute and to the sailors he loved. These resources are used to encourage naval leaders for the betterment of the sailors and Marines in their charge, just as Joe did throughout his life.
