USS Intrepid Collection
The operational records series contains records created in the process of performance of the ship’s official operations. There are records arranged by record type and function and by department. Record types and functions include correspondence and personnel management. Records of the Engineering Department are particularly well-represented, as are those of the Air Department, Gunnery Department, and Navigation Department.
Sailors’ personal papers consist of papers that would have been in the possession of Intrepid sailors, but that are unrelated to sailors’ official duties on board. The series includes a Crossing the Line Ceremony script, annotated maps, letters, and ephemera from ship events and ports of call.
The publications series is made up of material that would have been produced by Intrepid’s print shop, including newspapers, booklets, plans of the day, cruise maps, ephemera, and action reports.
