New Submarine Documentation at AIMM

A large donation of submarine documentation, most dating from the early 20th century, was recently donated to AIMM. Some of these articles even date to the late 19th century.

Some of the highlights of this collection:

Two 1918 articles from theBulletin of the New York Public Library, "The List of References on Submarines". These are almost certainly the first published bibliographic works on submarines.

Part I can be downloaded HERE (7.2 MB Adobe PDF File)
Part II can be downloaded HERE (3.5 MB Adobe PDF File)
The index of authors can be downloaded HERE (305 KB Adobe PDF File)
The index of subjects can be downloaded HERE 957 KB Adobe PDF File)

An 1899 article from Scientific American titled, "The Submarine Boat and It's Future"

There are articles about some of the earliest submarines and submarine accidents.

As soon as these articles can be scanned, they will be made available in electronic format.

AIMM would like to thank the donor, and we would also like to thank Ron Martini, USSVCF Library Chairman, for his work in bringing this unique collection to AIMM.
