Why does Anthony have a crush on ILL DOOTS? “ILL DOOTS is my first ensemble. The members have changed. The sound has expanded. The explorations have shifted. Even the mission has evolved --- but the need to create has always driven us forward, that has not changed. No matter the shape and sound of ILL DOOTS the product never exists without full respect for the necessity of the process; each individual's process as well as the process of communing, listening, and collaborating together.” On December 15 come out to the Hothouse CRUSH Series featuring Ill DOOTS in the Wilma's Good Karma Cafe.

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

    Do You Have What It Takes to be a Midshipmen at the U.S. Naval Academy? 1913 Edition
    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!
