McMullen Naval History Symposium
Welcome to the home of U.S. Naval Academy's McMullen Naval History Symposium.

The 2021 McMullen Symposium will be held in Annapolis, Maryland, on 23-24 September 2021. Held since 1973, the symposium has been described as the "largest regular meeting of naval historians in the world" and as the U.S. Navy's "single most important interaction with [an] academic historical audience."
