Arrangement:
Collection is unarranged.

No historical information about the subject of these photographs is available at the present time. Efforts have been made to contact Mr. John C. Goff, who was an employee of the Washington Navy Yard Optical Shop during World War II, and who is a former NMAH Division of Electricity volunteer. It is hoped that he will provide information about the history and activities of the Optical Shop and identify the photographs. The maker of the photographs in the collection is unidentified, but it presumably was a Navy staff photographer.
