The archives of the National Naval Institute were founded in 1985 after the donation of the personal effects of Robin Quickly. The donation, which mostly consisted of postcards, was given to the institute without any explanation of the items. Robin Quickly, though never in the navy, was a well-travelled sailor. Twenty years after the archives were founded a documentary crew started on the journey to uncover the life of Robin Quickly.
