Product Overview

One hundred years ago, the United States Naval Academy, in Annapolis, Maryland, the cradle of Navy and Marine Corps leadership, was in the midst of the most remarkable period of growth and change in its history. Its campus, known simply as "The Yard," was expanded and the patchwork of old and dilapidated buildings housing it was replaced with magnificent new buildings befitting an institution of its caliber. This amazing renaissance fostered a golden age at the school in academics, training, athletics, and the advent of traditions that still exist today. Through images on over 475 postcards produced between 1900 and 1930, also the golden age of picture postcards, this book lets you see what the Academy and life there were like when midshipmen with names like Nimitz, Halsey, King, Spruance, Mitscher and Burke were among its residents.
