Abstract Papers: Blueprints of and calculations for devices to counter the Acoustic Torpedo developed for ASDEVLANT, Quonset Point NAS, RI, and Surface Division of ASDEVLANT, Port Everglades, FL, 1943–1945; Blueprints and calculations for Damage Control and Hull Stability tests developed for Damage Control Project, Stevens Institute of Technology, Hoboken, NJ, 1945–1947; Correspondence, memoranda and reports regarding inventions and devices, 1938–1948. Scope and Contents The collection consists of forty-seven boxes of blueprints of anti-submarine and damage control devices, as well as those for yachts and the Aluminette. Included are mathematical calculations, technical booklets and reports, and correspondence relating to his work for the U.S. Navy in World War II and the immediate postwar era. From 1943 to 1947, Burgess worked for the Navy under personal service contracts: first for the Surface Division of ASDEVLANT at Quonset Point Naval Air Station, Rhode Island, and the U.S. Coast Guard Base at Port Everglades, Florida, and second, with the Damage Control Project administered by the Navy’s Office of Research and Inventions at Stevens Institute of Technology, 1945–1947. During his first assignment, he worked on acoustic torpedo countermeasures. At Stevens, he worked on hull stability measures and devised a method to calculate a ship’s stability when it had been damaged in action. By using these calculations, a ship would be...
