COVER The familiar features of Fleet Admiral E. J. King, U. S. Navy, are as famous in their own way as the elements of the mighty U. S. Navy Fleet which he once commanded. The artist, Raymond P. R. Neilson, graduated from the U. S. Naval Academy, Class of 1905, and, until his death in 1964, was an Associate Member of the National Academy. The original portrait of Fleet Admiral King is now in Memorial Hall at the U. S. Naval Academy.
