Description of Contents

The Hyman G. Rickover Papers, comprising 111.22 linear feet of documentation, span between 1916 and 2000, but focus primarily on Rickover’s professional life between 1918 and his death in 1985. The papers describe various events and aspects of Rickover’s naval career, personal life, research interests and professional activities relating to naval nuclear propulsion and civilian nuclear power.

The collection is composed of Rickover’s personal and official papers comprising various document types, including personal and official correspondence in the form of letters and memoranda, schedules, personnel records, photographs, speeches, congressional testimony, legal records, financial papers, and publications, including newspaper clippings and excerpts from magazines and books.

The Rickover Papers are organized into fourteen series according to document type. Admiral Rickover’s personal life and early navy assignments prior to and shortly after World War II are documented in CORRESPONDENCE, with separate subseries for letters sent to and received from his first wife, Ruth Masters Rickover, along with two distinct subseries documenting his personal and official activities between 1970 and 1985. A complete record of his personal and official correspondence for the period 1974 to 1981 may be found in CHRONOLOGICAL FILES. In addition to coverage in earlier series, Rickover’s recollections of his early life, as well as his later activities near the end of his career are highlighted in SUBJECT FILES.

General personal material relating to family, financial, and medical matters, as well as professional subjects relating to Admiral Rickover’s many active duty extensions, retirement, and nuclear power projects is housed in PERSONAL FILES. Admiral Rickover’s many published speeches addressing American education, philosophy, work-ethic, the navy, government, and other subjects, which he eventually copyrighted and used extensively in his personal research and professional activities can be found in three subseries of SPEECHES. Rickover’s lawsuits to protect the copyright of his speeches, as well as issues over permission to quote or publish biographies or films mentioning the admiral or the nuclear power program may be found in the court records and correspondence in LEGAL FILES.

In addition to coverage in earlier series, Rickover’s naval career, personal and professional engagements at various Atomic Energy Commission facilities, as well as appearances at public institutions and universities are highlighted in PHOTOGRAPHS. Rickover’s ubiquitous presence at the keel-laying, launching, and commissioning of nuclear-powered ships and submarines is documented in SHIP AND BOAT BOOKS. The various trade journal, magazine, and digest articles authored by and about Rickover, as well as research, publishing, and distribution material pertaining to the admiral’s published books are housed among the material in PUBLICATIONS. Rickover’s diverse research interests in education, personal and professional development, as well as a thorough documentation of publicity relating to his own naval career may be found in NEWSPAPER CLIPPINGS, as well as EXCERPTS, and RESEARCH FILES. Rickover’s extensive appearances before various senate and house committees on education, nuclear energy, the nuclear navy, and other naval matters may be found in the published transcripts contained in CONGRESSIONAL TESTIMONY.

Contextual information, including extensive subject file notes and reference materials about Rickover’s navy assignments, professional and research interests, along with interview transcripts with various individuals associated with Admiral Rickover and the navy nuclear propulsion program may be found in the eight subseries of the admiral’s biographer and close confidant FRANCIS DUNCAN RESEARCH FILES.

Research interests served by the Rickover Papers include the personal history and opinions of Hyman G. Rickover, the navy’s nuclear propulsion program and nuclear submarine and ship fleet during the Cold War, as well as research on American education.

Series 10: FRANCIS DUNCAN RESEARCH FILES, 1918-2000 Boxes 72-127

Series Description

This series contains research notes, background information, subject files, reference materials and chapter drafts of Francis Duncan’s 2001 book Rickover: The Struggle for Excellence. Many of the notes also likely pertain to Duncan’s 1990 book Rickover and the Nuclear Navy: The Discipline of Technology. Admiral Rickover assigned government historian Francis Duncan to write historical studies of the joint Atomic Energy Commission-Department of the Navy naval nuclear propulsion program in 1969. Throughout the last two decades of his life, Rickover spent considerable time discussing his work, career, academic interests and personal life with Francis Duncan, who, with the assistance of Eleanor Rickover and access to Rickover’s personal papers, authored his two biographies of the admiral.

Series Arrangement

Organized into eight distinct subseries.
