While we are not rooting for one team or the other in the upcoming Army vs. Navy game, we must concede that the 1913 regulations governing the admission of candidates into the U.S. Naval Academy were rigorous! While processing a series of records from Record Group 181, Records of the Naval Districts and Shore Establishments, we uncovered an interesting booklet entitled “Regulations Governing Admission of Candidates into the U.S. Naval Academy.” Dated 1913, the regulations outline the U.S. Navy Department’s physical, moral, and intellectual requirements for enlisted Navy personnel to be admitted to the U.S. Naval Academy as midshipmen. To see if you would qualify, try a few of the questions from the practice examination! Or grab a friend and quiz one another! Take the quiz by visiting the Pieces of History blog. This post comes from our very own Samuel Limneos, Archives Technician at the National Archives at Philadelphia. https://prologue.blogs.archives.gov/2017/12/07/do-you-have-what-it-takes-to-be-a-midshipmen-at-the-u-s-naval-academy-1913-edition/#more-28172 Tagging: Army West Point Football, Navy Football, Navy Department Library, Nimitz Library, United States Naval Academy
