Scope & Content Electricians Handbook. Sponsored by Electrical Department, Todd Shipyards Corporation, Hoboken Division. Printed by Office Staff, Todd Shipyards Corp., Hoboken Division. No date, circa 1942-1945. Printed leaves, 4" x 7" high; unprinted brown pressboard covers; post binding at top edge; 122 pp. plus 5 lined pages for notes.

This copy belonged to U.S. Navy Inspector Edward J. Gully, #13 as written in ink on page 1.

Profusely illustrated with diagrams, tables and charts. Apparently this was only Chapter III as content pages show; it goes directly pg 7, Chapter III contents, to page 8 with instructional text.

Reference to a July 1942 Navy specs helps to establish the early date. This shipyard did extensive work for the Navy in World War II and training workers for military needs was essential.
