SNAME Gulf Section Holds Fall Meeting
The 30th Annual Fall Meeting of the Gulf Section of The Society of Naval Architects and Marine Engineers (SNAME) was held at the Broadwater Beach Hotel, Biloxi, Miss., on September 22, 1978.
A capacity crowd attended the technical session which opened at 11 a.m. with John J. Kelly, vice president, Bell Aerospace Textron, presenting "Recent Developments in Air Cushion Vehicle Application." The afternoon session featured Dr. C. Kendall Clarke, consulting metallurgist, who presented his paper "A Metallurgist Looks At Reliability in Marine Structures." Phelps T. Delaune, senior staff engineer, Taylor Diving and Salvage Co., presented "Deep Sea Diving and Salvage Operations," and Dennis Sullivan, chief engineer, Red Fox Industries, presented "Clearing the Water," a paper on marine sewage disposal.
The authors responded to questions from the audience, following their presentations.
A fashion presentation with door prizes was arranged during the afternoon for the enjoyment of the ladies.
Activities of the day ended with an evening cocktail hour and buffet dinner with dancing.
A word of welcome to members and guests was given by Robert S. Berney, vice chairman, East Area of the Gulf Section.
The honored guest and dinner speaker, Robert T. Young, president of the Society, and chairman of the board, American Bureau of Shipping, presented a Certificate of Appreciation to William A. Solitario for his excellent leadership in the East Area of the Gulf Section during the past year, and addressed the audience on "A Strong Merchant Marine," a well-accepted speech firmly endorsed by his listeners.
The meeting adjourned for an evening of socializing and dancing.k
