Captain Laurence F. Safford – Father of U.S. Navy Cryptology!

Captain Laurence F. Safford
American Naval officer and cryptanalyst
October 22, 1893 – May 18, 1973
Laurance Frye Safford was born in Somerville, Massachusetts, on October 22, 1893. He graduated from the Naval Academy in 1916. After World War One duty in destroyers, and later as commanding officer of several submarines, he was assigned to the Research desk at OP-20-G.  Safford was head of the forerunner of the Naval Security Group from April, 1936 to 1 February, 1942. By common consent, Safford is regarded as the founding father of our organization.
