For much of the first four decades of the twentieth century (with the exception of an impulse effort during World War I), undersea acoustics had limited financial support and a small number of practitioners. During 1940–1950 this situation changed. A massive effort funded by the U. S. Navy enabled a large multidisciplined group of civilian scientists to transform a previously relatively simple pragmatic ’’art’’ into an increasingly complex emerging science.
