The article focuses on the developments in the United States Naval Institute. Through the assistance of longtime member Everett P. Weaver of Winnetka, Illinois, and the generosity of the Paul Bechtner Foundation, the Naval Institute Press has commissioned award-winning author Carl LaVO to pen a biography of Admiral Eugene Fluckey that should be completed in 2006. A critical component of the Naval Institute's educational and outreach mission is to maintain its archives of nearly half a million images. To provide widespread access to the collection and to produce high-quality prints at a reasonable cost, the photo library staff requests assistance to secure the items and services.
