Without a doubt, the historical richness of the maritime industry and the presentation of such in these pages is the aspect of this job I enjoy most.

This edition is the 65th Anniversary edition of Maritime Reporter & Engineering News, a testament to the perseverance of one company and its quest to service the industry with information as envisioned by John J. O'Malley in 1939.

The company, much as the industry and the world, have undergone radical changes since the first edition of "Maritime Activity Reports" was published 65 years ago.
