Stuart S. Danoff
Mr. Danoff, who is an American, recently returned to the United
States after several years of resi- dence in Holland and England, where he represented major U.S. shipping and container lines. He was most recently vice president and general manager in the United
Kingdom for Seatrain Lines. Mr.
Danoff participated heavily in the expansion of Seatrain's container services between the U.S. East
Coast and Puerto Rico.
A native New Yorker, Mr. Dan- off is an alumnus of New York
University and Long Island Col- lege, where he majored in interna- tional trade.
That's the day President Nixon signed the Merchant Marine Act of 1970.
The Act doesn't guarantee the resur- gence of American Flag shipping. But it does provide the basic plan. And the incentive.
So now it's up to us.
All of us. Commercial shipowners and operators. Labor. And shipbuilders.
As America's largest private ship- yard, we feel we have a particularly heavy responsibility. And a challenging oppor- tunity. That's why we're so deeply com- mitted to a vigorous, new Merchant
Marine shipbuilding program.
Our commitment began in 1969, with our successful bid on a MarAd CMX study contract to develop foreign trade forecasts and standard ship designs for the next decade.
It has continued with the establish- ment of a Market Development Divi- sion geared to capture a major share of the commercial shipbuilding market.
And it will continue with active and competitive bidding on merchant ship construction.
That's why we can say Newport News
Shipbuilding is ready when you are.
Ready with the talent, experience and facilities it takes to help revitalize and keep the U.S. Merchant Marine alive.
If you'd like to see how we can put this commitment to work, please write to Mr. Joseph D. Deal, Jr., Director of
