REAR ADMIRAL REGINALD R. BELKNAP - AUTOGRAPH NOTE SIGNED 04/30/1942 - HFSID 311746

 
REGINALD R. BELKNAP
The veteran of four US wars signed here as a Rear Admiral (retired).
Autograph Note signed: "Best wishes for Ronald Smith/from Reginald R. Belknap/Rear Admiral, U. S. N., retired/At Washington's Statue/Sub-Treasury,New York/April 30, 1942", 6x4½. Reginald Rown Belknap (1871-1959), a Naval Academy graduate (1891), served in four wars: the Spanish-American War, the Boxer Rebellion, the Philippine-American War and World War I. Perhaps his greatest contribution came in World War I, where he commanded Mine Squadron One, laying mines in the North Sea, the US Navy's first offensive mining operation (1918). He rendered major humanitarian service in relief of victims of the Messina, Italy earthquake and tsunami of 1909. Promoted to rear admiral prior to his 1927 retirement, Belknap remained active in many church, veterans and patriotic organizations. In 1943, the year after he signed this note, Belknap became President of the Naval Academy Graduates Association. Lightly toned. Small hole on top edge. Slightly soiled along right margin. Binding holes on left margin. Otherwise, fine condition.
