OUR FIRST ' "AR
Thomas Sovereign Gates, jr. was born in Philadelphia
on -April 10, 1906 to Thomas Sovereign and Marie Rogers
Gates. His father was a lawyer and investment banker who
served as President of the University of Pennsylvania from
1930 to 1944. His mother died when he was born. After gradu-
ating from Chestnut Hill Academy in 1924, Gates attended
the University of Pennsylvania, wh ere he was a Phi Beta
Kappa member of the class of 1928. On 29 September 1928,
Gates married Millicent Anne Brengle of Philadelphia. Fol-
lowing graduation, Gates en tered his fath er's investment
banking business, Drexel and Co., and in 1940 became a part-
ner. During those years he served in the Pennsylvania Na-
tional Guard as a private.
A member of the US. Naval Reserve since 1935, Gates
was called to World War II active duty in April 1942 and com-
missioned a lieutenant. He graduated from the Quonset Point
Air Intelligence School in Rhode Island and was assigned to
the staff of the Commander in Chief Atlantic Theater to help
organize the Na val Air Intelligence Center under that com-
mand. During this tour he participated in the North African
"Casablanca" landings as an observer in the aircraft carrier
In the summer of 1943 Gates joined the new light carrier
MONTEREY as Air Combat Intelligence Officer. As part of
the Fast Carrier Task Force, Pacific Fleet, MONTEREY sup-
ported amphibious landings at Tarawa and K wajalein and
participated in strikes against New Britain, New Guinea, and
the island of Truk. Gates returned to the United States in the
early summer of 1944 to join the staff of R ear Admiral Calvin
T. Durgin as Flag Lieutenan t and Air Intelligence Officer and
participated in Operation Dragoon, the planned invasion of
Upon the successful completion of Dragoon, Durgin's
American carriers redeployed to the Pacific, where on the
USS MAKIN ISLAND, Gates participated in the invasions of
Linga yen, Iwo jima, and Okinawa. For service in these opera-
tions Gates received the Bronze Star Medal. After three addi-
tional months of combat operations in support of the Okina-
wa invasion, Gates completed his service and arrived in San
Francisco on V-I Da y where he reverted to the Na val Reserve
with the rank of Commander. f
Gates resumed civil life as a partner in Drexel and Co.
in the fall of1945 and shortly thereafter was elected a director
of several corporations in the Philadelphia area. Continuing
in the reserves, Gates was promoted to Captain and contin-
ued to take an interest in local reserve- activities, being a
founder of the 'Reserve Officers of Na val Service." In addi-
tion to serving as national vice president and director of the
Navy League of the United States, he served on the naval ad-
visory council of the Bureau of Aeronautics, in Washington.
In October of 1953, he accepted an appointment as Under
Secretary of the Na vy from President Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Four years laten on April 1, 195Z Thomas S. Gates, fr. as-
sumed the Office of Secretary of the Navy. Admiral Arleigh
Burke summed up Gates' time in the Navy Department when
he told him "Your service was in an era marked by the most
rapid technological changes in the history of the Na vy. " Mis-
siles were replacing guns, nuclear power for conventional,
jets replaced propellers, supersonic speeds and even explora-
tion into space were part of the changing Navy. During that
time, he participated in a re-organization of the Department
and delineated Na vy-Marine Corps relationship to the satis-
faction of both services.

In May of 1959 President Eisenhower asked Gates to be-
come Deputy Secretary of Defense. He then succeeded Neil
McElroy as Secretary of Defense in December of the same
year. During his ten ure as Secretary, Gates accomplished
managementinnovations that facilitated the Pentagon 's tran-
sition to modern weapons and tactics, including long range
ballistic missiles, supersonic jets and tactical atomic bombs.
After 14 months as Secretary, Gates left the Pentagon. He was
