USNI Commodore Donates Art
In October 2010, while in Annapolis to attend the Naval Institute’s piracy conference, USNI Commodore Dr. Robert W. Selle of Chestnut Hill, Massachusetts, his wife, Katharine, and granddaughter Nelly Calhoun stopped by Beach Hall to view their recent gift to the Institute. The print, “Catch Me If You Can,” by noted military and maritime artist Tom W. Freeman, depicts the USS Constitution being pursued under fire by a squad of British ships. Freeman’s artwork is now prominently displayed in the conference room on the fourth floor of the Naval Institute’s headquarters.
History Program Needs Your Support
Naval Institute oral histories are made possible solely through gift income. You can help further the Institute’s efforts by making a tax-deductible gift now to benefit this program. We gratefully accept general history support—your gift will be applied to a project where it is most needed—or you can stipulate which history endeavor you prefer to underwrite. Among unfinished projects are the oral histories of:
Jesse W. Arbor, Member of the Golden 13
James E. Hair, Member of the Golden 13
