LIBRARY This list represents
books, pamphlets, and other documents that I have collected
regarding the fleet. Please consider it a reference
that you can use. If you email me with a specific
question, I'll take a look and let you know.
Roosevelt's Great White Fleet
history of the Cruise with a unique prospective on the
Naval politics regarding new construction. Highly
Recommended, I re-read this book for fact regularly.
the World with the Fleet 1907 - 1909
pictorial Log of the Cruise
States Naval Institute
is a log for each port visit with black and white photos
of events, buildings and sailors. Really nice
and has been good for comparing with items that I find
that are unlabeled.
on Board Ships of the Atlantic Fleet
for the Pacific, December 16, 1907
excellent reference for collectors of fleet correspondence.
The book provides the home address of the sailors
of the fleet when they departed from Hampton Roads.
The book is organized by 'state' and allows the
reader to check a city to see if a sailor with a certain
'last name' departed for the cruise from that address.
Roosevelt and the Great White Fleet
strong discussion on Amercian seapower and the events
leading up the Great White Fleet cruise. A great
source of facts.
is a career history from Robley Evans. The copy
that I have is autographed on the inside front coverby
R. D. Evans.
