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!

Square 1682 (121 S. 17th Street) starts early with brunch from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. (fill up with the steak and eggs). In the evening, dinner is a three-course affair for $55 that includes tuna tartare, ancho chili–rubbed ribeye, and, for dessert, eggnog cheesecake with a gingersnap crumble.

Join Taller Puertorriqueño Saturday from 1-3PM for a fantastic panel. Moderated by Larry La Fontaine, “Queer Prism” builds on the themes of Abram’s El Ambiente exhibition. The panel investigates Latino and Queer identities, and the stories created around places that bring people together. Looking at Puerto Rico’s queer spaces (el ambiente) and how they have become more visible in society, the panel will explore the transformation of Latino identity in light of growing acceptance of queer identity. Participants include Ron Abram, David Acosta, Gerard Silva, and Nikki Lopez.
