Chester Nimitz

Biography

Fleet admiral of the United States Navy. He played a major role in the naval history of World War II as Commander in Chief, United States Pacific Fleet (CinCPac), for U.S. naval forces and Commander in Chief, Pacific Ocean Areas (CinCPOA), for U.S. and Allied air, land, and sea forces during World War II.

Nimitz was the leading U.S. Navy authority on submarines. He oversaw the conversion of these vessels' propulsion from gasoline to diesel, and then later was key to acquiring approval to build the world's first nuclear-powered submarine, USS Nautilus, whose propulsion system later completely superseded diesel-powered submarines in the U.S. The chief of the Navy's Bureau of Navigation in 1939, Nimitz served as Chief of Naval Operations (CNO) from 1945 until 1947. He was the United States' last surviving officer who served in the rank of fleet admiral.

He died 20 February 1966.

Source Notes

Lepoivre had the time 12.30, source unknown. Starkman rectified to 12.49.08 CST.

On 7 June 2017, Ken Humke sent photos from an exhibition at the musuem of Pacific War. There, the journal of the midwife attending Nimitz' birth is exhibited, which records 1 pm as time of birth. As other entries in the journal show, the midwife had the habit of recording the time of birth with 1/4 of an hour precision.
