Maurice L Freedman

Maurice L  Freedman, RISD Alumnus, was the district camoufleur in Florida during World War I.  After the war he attended RISD and donated the dazzle plans and photos.  He was born in New York in 1898 and died in Massachusetts in 1983.  We don’t know much about Maurice.  Hoping someone knows more.

  1. Is Maurice Freedman the same as the one who created one of the first versions of the game ‘battleships’?

  2. Yes, Maurice L. Freedman created an early version of Battleship, called “Warfare naval combat”. The RISD Library has a copy of it.
