Commander Matthew F.

Maury enthusiast Russell Hooper will give an overview of Commander Maury's life and spend some time discussing his formative years here in Franklin during the early 1800's. His older cousin and Franklin's founder was Abram Maury.  He will also discuss Cmdr. Maury's experience at The Harpeth Academy and teachers there, the Rev. Gideon Blackburn and his lifelong mentor, Bishop James H. Otey.
 
He will also discuss his entire life, from his time at the U.S. Naval Observatory, his work on the First TransAtlantic Cable, his mapping of the World's oceans, his involvement in The American Civil War. Maury was into the Hall of Fame for Great Americans in the Class of 1930 along with Walt Whitman and President James Monroe.  The U.S. Navy's will name its newest Survey Vessel in the Pathfinder Fleet the USNS Maury in his honor.
 
Hooper will bring some original letters written by Commander Maury as well as some of his original books, including an 1855 first edition of his groundbreaking "Physical Geography of the Sea" which is considered the first comprehensive textbook ever written on the science of Oceanography. 

Russell Hooper is a private investor by day, but his passion is his extensive collection of Fontaine-Maury Family papers he’s acquired over the past several years. He calls his collection "The Pathfinder Papers" in honor of Commander Maury. His is considered the largest known collection of Maury's papers in private hands. His end goal is to eventually publish the letters and papers as The Pathfinder Papers.
