Content Description

Albert A. Lawrence was a Professor at the United States Coast Guard Academy in New London, Connecticut during part or all of the 1940s and 1950s. During the years 1961 to 1966, he was Dean at Maritime College. These Papers pertain exclusively to some of the years he served as a Faculty Member at the Academy, and broadly speaking may be said to refer to the Maritime Industry, especially in regard to construction, labor, and the economics of the Industry. There is also some brief insight into the admission of cadets to maritime life, at least historically. This collection consists largely of newspaper clippings, a number of reports, an occasional student report which had been submitted to him, and similar documents. There is, however, one exception, the subject titled "Admission to Cadetship", which contains several original nineteenth-century documents. Evidently, the majority of the items in this collection, except for a few publications, were arranged by Lawrence into a number of subjects for his classroom work or, perhaps, for an occasional talk before a professional group. Materials in these folders are dated principally in the 1950s though there are items for the 1940s and an occasional 1930s or 1960s, as well as some un-dated material, these undoubtedly, are also for the 1950s. In virtually all cases the title which Professor Lawrence gave to his subjects has been retained. This was not possible in a very few instances basically because he himself had not named them or they were unclear. These titles or subject headings have been provided by the archivist, and are identified as such.
