Biography of Winthrop L. Warner, 1900-1987

Winthrop L. Warner was a naval architect specializing in the design of wooden cruising yachts from the inception of his career in Middletown, Connecticut in 1929, until his retirement in Vero Beach, Florida. During that time Warner designed over two hundred vessels, the majority of which were built.

Born in Middletown, Connecticut in 1900, Warner began his own Naval Architecture career there in 1929. An M.I.T. graduate and apprentice at the Electric Boat Company in Bayonne, New Jersey and the Portland Boat Yard in Portland, Connecticut, as well as a draftsman for John G. Alden and William H. Hand, Warner was well equipped to design yachts.

After the construction of his 53' ketch FELISI (represented in these papers as Design 20), Warner's practice grew steadily. While his portfolio includes some commercial fishing vessels, and work boats such as the SELDEN IV, a 65' welded steel car and passenger ferry built for the State of Connecticut to serve as a ferry on the Connecticut River, the 50' SHANG WHEELER, a research vessel, and the 6' Shipmate Jolly Boat, built entirely of molded plastic, Warner is most well known for his sleek cruising vessels with a nice shear, low or flush cabin house, and inboard rig. As a regular and popular contributor to both "Yachting" and "The Rudder," for over 30 years his designs are both singular, and easily recognizable.

Scope and Content

The Winthrop L. Warner Papers are composed of correspondence, building specifications, sales contracts, vessel weight and displacement calculation tables, ships' plans reprints, design lists, and miscellaneous notes; 1932-1973, relating to Warner's vessel design career.

The papers are organized into five series: I. Design specifications, sales contracts, correspondence, and other design related papers (Boxes 1-17); II. Weight and displacement calculation tables (Boxes 18-22); III. Ship' plans reprints (Boxes 23-26); IV. Miscellaneous papers (27-29); and V. Volumes (Boxes 29-30).

Series I , II, III, and V, are arranged in design number order, the Miscellaneous files in Series IV are arranges alphabetically by folder title.

Warner assigned numbers to all plans that he considered designing. As some vessels never progressed beyond the preliminary discussion stage, many numbers are not represented in the collection. In addition Warner included in the numbered sequence folders with the title "JOB", such as "JOB 178, TRITON." These Jobs appear to represent situations where Warner either collaborated on a design or drew alterations to existing vessels designed by other naval architects. In many instances Warner also designed more than one model of a particular vessel. In the earlier part of the collection these design variations are noted by a dash followed by a rig initial, ie "-Y" to denote "Yawl," a "-C" to denote "Cutter", a "-S" to denote "Sloop", a "-A" to denote "Auxiliary" (having an engine as well as a full sailing rig), a "-P" to denote a "Power." Somewhere around design number 90, Warner altered his number system. Still continuing with the sequential initial number he now used, -A, -B,-C, etc. to denote differing rigs of the same hull type. In instances where more than one vessel of the same hull and rig type was produced Warner added a number following a dash to delimitate these. Therefore, as in the example of Design number 152 (most likely his most popular design), the collection contains folders labeled, 152-A, 152-B, 152-B-2, 152-B-3, 152-B-4, 152-B-5, 152-B-6, 152-B-7, 152-B-8, 152-B-9, 152-C, 152-P-1, 152-P-2, 152-P-3.

The material in this collection has been processed at a folder level, retaining, for the most part, Warner's original arrangement and filing system.

The material is generally in good condition, however many of the specifications in the first series are purple mimeograph master sheets containing purple ink which can easily stain fingers and transfer to other materials. Researchers must take care to clean their hands after handling these materials.

The Ships Plans Division of the Mystic Seaport houses Warner's extensive design drawings and plans.
