William Plume Moran, ..who has been
styled "The Patriarch of the Navy,"
fflrtae born in Norfolk. Va;' January 29,
1811, From h\\ earliest years he was In?
timately associated with the naval ser?
vice. A memprnble Incident of his
childhood may be cited: Commodore
iBarron, w>ho ynortally .wounded De
catur In that famous duel, fought at
Dladerusburg 22d (March, 1820, was a
groit friend of Mr. Moran's fa-ther.
Barr?n, together with his second, El?
liot":, practiced for the meeting at the
Moran homestead, Ghent, near Norfolk,
Mr. Moran's father arranged with the
captain of the steam packet Potomac,
plying between Norfolk and Washing?
ton, ahait In cn?e either of the princi?
pals was fatally wounded or killed a
red flag should fly at the masthead.
Mr. Moran, ?then a boy of nine, eagerly
watched for the signal as the little boat
passed his father's house, and he ran all
the way Into Norfolk to the packet's
landing In order 'to get the particulars
from the captain.
On January 1, 1827,Mr. Moran woo ap?
pointed1 clerk to the captain of the Port
of Norfolk and served as such until Au?
gust 13, 1838, when he went to sea a?
clerk to Captain Beverly Kennon on the
Vandalla, spending eighteen months on
I the Brazllllan ."ration.
I After leaving the Vandalla Mr. Moran
was a.ttachcrt to the West Indian lleo!
for four years, .serving on the St. Louis,
a ship of eighteen guns, commanded by
Captain Henry of Norfolk.
Upon his return from the AVest Indian
cruise Air. Moran was attached to the
receiving ship Pennsylvania, at Nor?
folk, until October 2S. 1S43, when Com?
modore Warrlngton offered him a clerk?
ship In the Bureau of Yards and Docks
In the,navy depaairtment, which he ac?
During the war Mr. Moran had the
closest confidence of Secretary Gideon
Wells, all orders passing through his
hinds. At this trying time he per?
formed several duties In addition to
those of registrar and detail clerk, often
remaining at the navy department until
after midnight, sending off orders and
When the fire which occurred In the
old navy department threatened to de?
stroy AMluable documents and books,
Mr. Moran, with the assistance of sev?
eral young olllcvts, worked heroically
among falling piaster until ill the pa?
pers were paved, narrowly escaping in?
jury from falling debris.
For over forty years Mr. 'Moran signed
the commission of every cadet appoint
I ed to tin; Academy and of every oltlcer
of the navy. And there arc probably
otlicers in the service whose commis?
sion from ensign to admiral bear hie
slgnuture. While detail clerk Mr. Mo?
ran issued every order. The sight of
his well known writing often caused
consternation to the recipient. A story
Is told of the case of a young otltcer
who, when sitting by an open fire hold?
ing a small child and talking to his
wife, was handed an official envelope
bearing Mc. Moran's handwriting. Upon
catching a glimpse of the familiar chi
rography he knew he was booked for
sea dirty and, becoming so agitated,
dropped "the child In the fender.
Mr. Moran's handwriting was ever the
envy of all the otlicers nnd many vainly
tried to Imitate it. But one succeeded.
Paymaster Charles P. Thompson, now
retired, who was so successful that his]
wiflUng and fMrr. Mioran's cannot be
?Mr. Moran's memory < was noted
throughout: the navy. He had the re?
cord of every oflicer on. tho t'-P of his
tongue, and would remember a date
when it hid seemingly faded from the
records-. HHs room at the department
was always the meeting place of officers
on their return from a cruise to talk

?Mr. Moran, being naturally of a very
modei?: and retiring disposition, was
loth to speak of naval reiriln!sccnc< s.
hut, when surrounded by his friends,
he warmed up a*nd fairly radiated the
bits of humor and wisdom connected
with the naval service of bygone days.
Mr. Moran's earoer comprised the
most vital changes tha't have occurred
in the American navy?Its growth and
development from the time of the Intro?
duction of stearn on the DcmolOgOS (or
Fulton) and the Sea Gull to the present
day of 'the missive battleship.* During
his long extended connection with the
naval establishment he was associated

commanded the ill-fitted Jeanette Ex?
position. It was written jus*, as the
Jeanette was beaded for the Polar scan.
In the letter Dc Long (who little

should be buried beneath the snow
drifts of the far North) asks Mr. Moran
to say good bye once more to his many
friends at lite department, and begs him
not to scratch him off the list under live
In July, 1800, Mr. Moran, through fail?
ing health, was at last obliged to ac?

?Since his enforced resignation Mr.
Moran's constitution gradually weak?
ened, but with the exception of the last
thtec months, his mental faculties were
not seriously impaired.
Mr. Moran'.s death will be universally
regretted throughout the navy, as well
as by the employes of the navy depart?
ment, for hi.- courteous bearing raid
kindly manner endeared him to all with
whom he cane- in contact.
