    Derrick,

    The Navigator's Newsletter is a paper put out by the Navigation Foundation. As I understand it (and I hope others will correct me) the Foundation was set up by the late Rear Admiral Tom Davies, and officers associated with him, as a nonprofit organization dedicated to keeping non-electronic navigation alive. Davies insisted there be no advertising and no salaries. It's kept alive by dues-paying members. You have to be a member (dues are $35 a year) to get the Newsletter or order back copies.

    The Foundation for the Promotion of the Art of Navigation
    Box 1126, Rockville, MD  20850

    The director, Capt. Carraway, has his own life to live, and is often away, gallivanting around the world. So it may take a while to get a response.
