The reports are addressed to the Assistant Secretary of the Navy for the Years 1901 to 1905, and thereafter to the Secretary of the Navy. The Naval Government of Guam was established by President William McKinley’s Executive Order of December 23, 1898. The Governors of Guam, for the period covered by these reports were all appointed by the Secretary of the Navy and commissioned by the President.
