About the Photos

Most of the photos on this site were extracted from reference images (high-resolution tiffs, 20 to 200 megabytes in size) from the Library of Congress research archive. (To query the database click here.) Many were digitized by LOC contractors using a Sinar studio back. They are adjusted by your webmaster for contrast and color in Photoshop before being downsized and turned into the jpegs you see here.

Period Piece

Even when they spelled out '92 with their hats, they had to put a period at the end.

Touchy-Feely....

....was OK in 1892.

Class of '92 Alumni

According to lists that I could easily find, this group includes:

Admiral Luke McNamee, who served as the 10th and 12th Naval Govenor of Guam and advanced to the rank of Admiral

Captain Edward Stanley Kellogg, 16th Governor of American Samoa (1923–1925)

Major General John H. Russell, Jr.; Commandant of the Marine Corps (1934–1936)

Rear Admiral Yates Stirling, Jr.

Lieutenant General John Twiggs Myers; Marine Corps

Now Hear This

anyone caught smiling will be keelhauled, that is an order !

Sigh...

Dear Two Gorgeous Grads in the front row..yes, you 3 fellas in from the left and you, 3 fellas in from the right. I just want to fix your hair (and those shoes have to go too) and then gaze into your handsome mugs...I just hate when I get crushes on 135 year old men..

What they would see

In a few years, as junior officers, they would experience the Spanish-American War. Then they would see the rise of the Dreadnaught class of warships, followed by the rise of submarines and aviation. As senior officers they would fight in World War I. They would have very busy careers.

Squiggy!

I don't see Lenny, maybe he flunked out.

What gives?

As the uncle of a 2013 graduate of the Naval Academy, I take exception to your Gilbert & Sullivan and Lord of the Flies references. You can do better.
