United States Navy Admiral, Inventor. He graduated from Annapolis in 1874 and devoted his entire US Navy career to the invention of instruments for shipboard use. He served in the Spanish-American War, receiving many citations as navigating officer in the Battle of Manila Bay. For his technical innovations, he was promoted to Rear Admiral in 1911. He holds over sixty patents for Navy devices used world wide. His numerous inventions include electrically powered gun turrets, telescopic sights for naval guns, submarine protection devices, electromagnetic system for detonating torpedos under ships, electric range finders and the torpedo plane. He resigned from the Navy in 1916, after a series of policy disagreements with Secretary of the Navy Josephus Daniels. (bio by: John "J-Cat" Griffith)
