U. S. Navy Hydrofoil Exhibit at the

National Museum of the U.S. Navy

A Call for Action!

IHS is working towards a hydrofoil exhibit for the National Museum of the U.S. Navy located at the Washington Navy Yard in Washington, D.C. The museum displays naval artifacts, models, documents, and fine art that chronicle the history of the United States Navy. It is an ideal venue to capture the rich history of the USN hydrofoil program.

Objectives of the exhibit are to:

The exhibit will include a collection of USN hydrofoil models, videos, hydrofoil technical information and visual aids. The museum will provide labor to develop the exhibit. However, the IHS will need to raise about $2,000 to cover material expenses for the visual aids. We need your help in providing material for the exhibit and contributing funds. Monetary contributions are tax-deductible and can be earmarked for this project by contacting Roger Schaffer, IHS Treasurer, at: rschaffer8@comcast.net

Joel Billingsley is the Point of Contact for this exciting project. Please contact him at: joelbillingsley@earthlink.net to volunteer your time and your talent. Additional information on the museum is available at: http://www.history.navy.mil
