Abstract:
The United States Naval Academy, located in Annapolis, Maryland, has trained officers for the U.S. Navy since 1845 and for the U.S. Marine Corps since 1887. This dissertation examines cultural and social changes at the Academy since 1949, and connects transformations at Annapolis to social trends in the larger American society. Through the use of a variety of source material, including archival research, oral history, and participatory observation at the Naval Academy, this manuscript presents thematic case studies related to gender, pranks, race, recruiting, religion, and midshipmen activism.
