Inscription.  Chartered in the District of Columbia in 1926, the primary objectives of the Naval Historical Foundation are to collect and preserve private documents, papers and artifacts of naval historical significance and to make them readily available for public display and scholarly research; to stimulate the study of naval history, naval customs and naval tradition; and to portray the role of seapower in the development of the United States.

Artifacts from the foundation’s extensive collection have been incorporated into the exhibits of the Navy Memorial Museum and the historical displays throughout the Navy Department. The foundation’s manuscript collection deposited in the Library of Congress has been described as the largest body of personal papers in a single repository relating to United States naval history.
