Dear Mr. Stith,
Thank you for posting your request on History Hub!
We searched the National Archives Catalog and located the series Official Military Personnel Files in the Records of the Bureau of Naval Personnel (Record Group 24) that contains the OMPF of Hyman Rickover and may include information about his travels or correspondence that you seek. The file is digitized and available using the Catalog.
We also located the series Records Documenting Development, Plans and Procedures Related to Reactor Plants for the Nuclear Propulsion System, 1950 - 1953 in the Records of the Naval Ship Systems Command (Record Group 344) that may contain records of communications between Captain Rickover and the U.S. Bureau of Mines in Albany, Oregon. For access to this series, please contact the National Archives at College Park - Textual Reference (RDT2) via email at email@example.com.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic and pursuant to guidance received from the Office of Management and Budget (OMB), NARA has adjusted its normal operations to balance the need of completing its mission-critical work while also adhering to the recommended social distancing for the safety of NARA staff. As a result of this re-prioritization of activities, you may experience a delay in receiving an initial acknowledgement as well as a substantive response to your reference request from RDT2 . We apologize for this inconvenience and appreciate your understanding and patience.
We also located the series titled the National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks Program Records in the Records of the National Park Service (Record Group 79) that includes the file National Register of Historic Places and National Historic Landmarks Program Records: Connecticut, 1/1/1964 - 12/31/2013 with the item Connecticut NHL NAUTILUS (USS) (Nuclear Submarine). The item may include information or citations for further research. This item is available using the Catalog.
We hope this is helpful. Best of luck with your research!
