Merril Bauer Collection

Life in the Navy

The Life in the Navy Special Collections section consits of donated collections which have imagery related to the life of the everyday sailor, including sporting actitivies, Crossing the Line Ceremonies, cleaning, mail call, eating in the mess hall, on liberty, playing in bands, and general ship's tasks. Not all images within the collection may be about the Life in the Navy, but they include photographs which were deemed significant enough to be filed within this topic.
