Sea Change at Annapolis

The United States Naval Academy (USNA) at Annapolis, Maryland, is the most revered source of officers for the Navy, for the Marine Corps since 1887, and for the Air Force between 1949 and 1963. The Naval Academy is an institution abundant with traditions, and this book employs culture as a vehicle to study and analyze the dramatic changes in Annapolis. It describes the activities within the institutional culture of USNA, beginning with an overview of the history of the academy and an outline of the USNA administrative organization. The chapter then describes aspects of midshipmen's admission, lives and activities in the Academy, and the graduation process. It also highlights one of the Academy's dramatic transformations, what came to be known as the “Academic Revolution.”
