Holloway Halstead Frost born in Brooklyn, New York, was an American World War I Navy officer and Navy Cross recipient. Frost was a member of the U.S. Naval Academy class of 1910. A widely published author, his work ranged the gamut of naval subjects, from history to operational analysis to ship-handling. His naval career was as distinguished as his literary; he not only was a designated naval aviator, but was also qualified for command in submarines. He was awarded the Navy Cross for his World War I service as aide to Commander, American Patrol Detachment, Atlantic Fleet, a billet in which he played a significant role in developing the tactics of surface and air forces in combined operations against submarines. Commander Frost died January 26, 1935 at Kansas City, Missouri, while a member of the staff of the Command and General Staff School, Fort Leavenworth, Kansas.
