Overview and metadata sections
Henry E. Eccles was a Rear Admiral in the United States Navy and a major figure at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island, from the late 1940s through the 1970s, as a thinker and writer on naval logistics and military theory. [from Wikepedia]
The collection consists of mimeographed copies of Eccles' working papers, articles, and lectures dealing with naval logistics and the Naval War College. Much of this work was done under the sponsorship of the George Washington Logistics Research Project. Over twenty-six articles (1955-1961) are included in a collection called Notes on Military Concepts, which forms the core of Eccles' book Military Concepts and Philosophy. In addition, there are collected papers entitled Command Logistics (1956) and Military-Political Notes (1961-1965).
