“So much of our architecture here at the Naval Academy has been lost to expansion and progress that old photographs are essential to knowing what the place was like when Admiral Dewey or Dr. Albert A. Michelson as a student. Photography has provided a record of the people, faculty, staff, and midshipmen, of their abodes and work sites, and of the events in classrooms and in laboratories and on athletic and parade fields,” says author Cheevers.
