Captain Winifred Quick Collins, USN (ret.) served 20 years in the US Navy,  beginning during the early part of World War II.  At her retirement, Winifred Collins was the Chief of Naval Personnel for Women.  “Most of her career was in personnel positions, related to the integration of women into the Navy.  She served in Hawaii, San Francisco and Washington. Her decorations included a Bronze Star and the Navy Commendation Medal.”  Winifred Quick Collins is the author of More Than a Uniform: A Navy Woman in a Navy Man's World.


According to the Midwest Book review, “Author Collins was in the first group of women trained for Navy service in 1942: her importance in developing procedures for the classification of six thousand women officer candidates and her encounters in a 'man's Navy' is revealed in a biographical account which is personal and inspiring.”
