    ADM. WALLIS F. PETERSEN DIES
    June 25, 1991
    Wallis Frederick Petersen, 89, a Navy rear admiral and highly decorated veteran of World War II who served 43 years in the Navy before retiring in 1963 as commander of the Norfolk Naval Base and the Fifth Naval District, died of a cerebral thrombosis June 23 at his home in Bethesda.

    Adm. Petersen was awarded the Navy Cross, the service's highest Navy decoration for valor after the Medal of Honor, for his role during World War II in defending the aircraft carrier Hornet against enemy air attack and subsequently in rescuing survivors, after a decision had been made to abandon the ship, during the Battle of Santa Cruz Islands in October 1942.

    Serving as commanding officer of the destroyer Mustin, he brought his ship alongside the disabled and listing carrier while under heavy Japanese attack to help in fighting fires and assist in damage control, according to the citation accompanying the Navy Cross. He rescued 337 survivors from the Hornet, then fired the torpedoes that scuttled the ship.

    Later in the war, he commanded destroyer squadrons and divisions and participated in the amphibious combat operations at Saipan in the summer of 1944.

    Adm. Petersen was born in Council Bluffs, Iowa. He graduated from the U.S. Naval Academy in 1924. Prewar assignments included duty aboard battleships and destroyers and service in Washington.

    After the war, he served in the Navy's Bureau of Personnel and held assignments at the Naval Academy, as well as several sea commands and duty in the office of the Chief of Naval Operations.

    Later, he was commander of the Military Sea Transport Service in the Western Pacific, deputy commandant of the NATO Defense College in Paris, director of Pan American affairs in the office of Chief of Naval Operations, and chief of the Military Advisory Assistance Group in Lisbon. He was commander of the Norfolk Naval Base and the Fifth Naval District from 1961 until his retirement.

    In addition to the Navy Cross, Adm. Petersen's decorations included a Bronze Star and the Legion of Merit, both with combat V.

    On retirement from the Navy, he returned to the Washington area. He had worked as a government relations specialist for the Hermes Corp. and CN Industrial Associates.

    His first wife, the former Marian Kent Snyder, whom he married in 1928, died in 1979. Survivors include his wife of 11 years, the former Fanny Dial Perry of Bethesda; a brother, Richard J. Petersen of Laguna Hills, Calif.; and a sister, Elizabeth Schonberg of Omaha.
