ASNE Delaware Valley Chapter Hears Report On Delaware River

Approximately 70 members and guests, the largest turnout ever, attended a recent meeting of the Delaware Valley Chapter of the American Society of Naval Engineers at the Officer's Club, Philadelphia Naval Base.

Howard Taylor of the Philadelphia Maritime Museum made an excellent slide presentation on "Building the Waterway: A Historical Look at the Delaware River." The Port of Philadelphia is not a great natural seaport. However, it ranks among the top three in the United States in terms of total tonnage handled. This is the result of a significant amount of human ingenuity and energy expended. The presentation dealt with the development of the Delaware River and the Port from 1609 to 1980.

Chapter chairman Eugene P. Weinert presented Mr. Taylor with a "Certificate of Appreciation."
