This cover of the 1951 Lucky Bag seems to demonstrate that graduate school might be in their future as Midshipmen march across the US to Monterey. This is one of the many items currently being digitized through a collaborative effort among the Dudley Knox Library, US Naval Academy Nimitz Library, Naval War College Henry E. Eccles Library, and the non-profit Internet Archive to digitize many of the rich resources in our libraries so they may be shared with a broader audience. NPS’s very own CALHOUN already provides access to more than 28,000 such items, including NPS theses, dissertations and technical reports. The Postgraduate School moved lock, stock and wind tunnel across the nation, from Annapolis to Monterey in December 1951. The coast-to-coast move involved 500 students; about 100 faculty and staff; and thousands of pounds of books and research equipment. Rear Adm. Ernest E. Herrmann supervised the move that pumped new vitality into the Navy's efforts to advance naval science and technology.
