MetadataShow full item record
The year 2001 marks the 50th anniversary of the graduate education program in operations research at the Naval Postgraduate School in Monterey, Calif. It was no accident that the School should have begun its program so early. The U.S. Navy established the first formal operations research organization in this country in the spring of 1942 and relied on operations research throughout World War II. In 1950, the Chief of Naval Operations directed that a program of study in operations research be created. The program began in August of 1951 with a class of nine students, and the first degrees were awarded in January 1953. The curriculum has been offered continuously since its initiation. There are more than 3,300 alumni representing all of the U.S. military services and those of 31 other nations.
