During the year leading up to her one-hundredth birthday on 3 January 2010, Natalie N. Nicholson compiled a memoir about growing up on Prospect and Paradise Avenues in Middletown. As Nicholson’s longtime friend and as Editor of Newport History, I feel privileged to see this memoir through to publication in this issue of the journal. Dr. John B. Hattendorf has been a moving force behind Newport History for the past twenty-one years. To this issue of the journal, Hattendorf contributes an article revisiting the impact of the closure of Rhode Island’s naval bases at Quonset Point and Newport in 1973.
