ARLEIGH BURKE
Signed in gold ink, shown in dress uniform, posed in front of a painting of a destroyer at sea
Photograph signed: "Arleigh Burke". B/w, 8x10. Arleigh Burke (1901-1996) led the "Little Beavers" destroyer squadron in World War II, fighting 22 combat engagements in four months in the Pacific. The squadron's high-speed dashes earned him the nickname "31 Knot Burke". He was part of the "Revolt of the Admirals" in the late 1940s, an ultimately successful attempt by the Navy to prevent many of its functions being transferred to the newly created Air Force, but was saved from dismissal by President Truman's intervention. Burke commanded Cruiser Division Five during the Korean War, and participated in the armistice negotiations. He served as Chief of Naval Operations from 1955-1961, longer than any predecessor. The Navy's current class of guided missile destroyers is named for him. Scattered light surface marks and creases, otherwise fine condition.
