The Admiral James L. Holloway III Society (Holloway Society) has been established by the Naval Historical Foundation (NHF) to recognize individuals that donate or formally pledge to give $100,000 or more to NHF. New Holloway Society members, those who have already donated $100,000 or more, and those who complete or exceed the full $100,000 contribution within five years of the Society’s launch will be considered Founding members. This special group of donors will provide direct support for NHF’s mission to:
Preserve and Honor the Legacy of Those Who Came Before
Educate and Inspire Those Who Will Follow
The Holloway Society will form the nucleus of major donor support for the Naval Historical Foundation. It is named in honor of Admiral James L. Holloway III, a highly decorated four-star Admiral whose combat expertise during World War II, the Korean War and the Vietnam War, and his public service after naval retirement, qualify him as a true modern day American naval hero. Admiral Holloway served as Chief of Naval Operations from 1974-1978, during the challenging Cold War chapter in U.S. military history. Following his retirement from active duty, Admiral Holloway served as President of NHF from 1980-1998, and ten more years as Chairman, before being elected Chairman Emeritus in 2008. Admiral Holloway’s outstanding Navy career and his 28 years of service to NHF serve as an inspiring example of leadership and dedication to advance our mission to educate new generations of naval history enthusiasts and inspire those who can learn from his example of achievement and service to the Navy.
