Admiralty: Department of the Director of Naval Construction: Directors' Papers
|Title:||Admiralty: Department of the Director of Naval Construction: Directors' Papers|
A collection of semi-official papers of several directors of naval construction made by their secretaries; the papers refer to the official work of the directorate and to other professional and private concerns of the directors.
The first transfer of papers into this series mainly consists of files collected by the Director of Naval Construction's (DNC) Secretary and not registered on internal or Admiralty files. They are in two sub-series; the first consists chiefly of semi-official and private correspondence to and from three successive DNC's.
These papers are arranged alphabetically by name of correspondent within each piece.
Similar papers of Sir Eustace Tennyson d'Eyncourt, DNC 1912-1923, are held by the National Maritime Museum. The professional diaries of Sir Stanley Goodall are in the British Library.
