Admiral Hyman Rickover, Legacy and Impact
A panel of distinguished U.S. Navy veterans will discuss the legacy of Admiral Rickover, considered by many as the father of the U.S. nuclear Navy. Presented in partnership with the Chicago Navy Memorial Foundation
A poor Jewish kid from Chicago’s Lawndale neighborhood, Admiral Hyman G. Rickover served more than 30 years as the head of the U.S. Navy’s Nuclear Propulsion Program and more than 63 years on active-duty. During his tenure, Rickover used unorthodox methods and challenged much of the military’s conventional wisdom to build America’s nuclear Navy. Rickover’s far-reaching impact on the Navy and on the nuclear technology industry has made him a legend and a source of inspiration for future leaders.
The Pritzker Military Museum & Library, in partnership with the Chicago Navy Memorial Foundation, welcomes Admiral John M. Richardson, USN (Retired), former Chief of Naval Operations and Director, Naval Nuclear Propulsion Program, Admiral Cecil D. Haney, USN (Retired), former Commander, U.S. Strategic Command and Commander, U.S. Pacific Fleet, and Rear Admiral Samuel Cox, USN (Retired), Director, Naval History and Heritage Command to discuss the legacy and impact of Admiral Rickover on the U.S. Navy.
