About meThe late Robert S. Egan was an expert Naval Architect and Marine Engineer. His career spanned 52 years, following his graduation from the Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering program at MIT in 1954, and continuing past his retirement from federal service with the closing of PNSY in Sept. of 1995, until his death in Dec. 2006. He worked at several prominant yards, starting at Newport News Shipbuilding. He served as Head of Design at both Boston and Philadelphia Naval Ship Yards. Between BNY and PNSY, he worked for 4 years at Electric Boat, in Groton, Conn., with a short break to go to BuShips. He wrote many articles for "Warship International" and for "The Belgin Shiplover", as well as developing and teaching many courses to train civil engineers in Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering throughout his career. This list is developed and maintained by his daughter, Mary.

About my libraryBob's collections are extensive, including books on Naval Vessels and Shipbuilding, in many languages, including Russian, Japanese, Italian and French. He has an extensive collection of Military History Volumes, with quite a large selection of Civil War Volumes. His library also holds many volumes on Merchant vessels and Naval Architecture and Marine Engineering. His collection of Mystery stories and other fiction titles was also extensive. Portions of these collections were dispersed prior to his retirement, and more were dispersed from his Fiction and Language sections following his death. Favorite authors included JRR Tolkien, David Eddings, Dorothy Sayers, Agatha Christie, Sherlock Holmes, Rex Stout, Mary Holt Rhienhart, Tom Clancy, C.S. Lewis.
