September 1958 Proceedings Magazine: United States Naval Institute

Front Cover, “The Mississinewa Refuels the Saratoga” was especially painted for the Proceedings by Colonel Phillips Melville, USAF (Ret.). Ships specialists may note certain changes in the appearance of the Mississinewa resulting from work done during her yard overhaul last year. Launched in 1955, she is one of the Navy’s largest oilers. For further details, see A Page From the New Navy in this issue. With the appearance of the Saratoga on the cover, each of the Forrestai-class carriers has now had its por- trait painted and presented in color to Naval Institute members. The scene shown is imaginary. To the best of our knowledge, the Mississinewa has never actually refueled the Saratoga.
