History of the Class of 1919

In the summer of 1915, 267 plebes were admitted to the United States Naval Academy, comprising the Class of 1919. The Class of 1919's time on the Yard was a time of expansion and reorganization for the student body, with the reorganization of the Brigade into the four battalion, twelve company Regiment of Midshipmen in 1915. 1916 saw the number of appointees for each Senator, Representative, and Delegate increase to three, followed by another increase to four in 1917. The physical development of the Yard also continued with the completion of Griffin Hall in 1918. Perhaps of greatest impact to the Class of 1919 was the April 6, 1917 declaration of war on Germany, which would ultimately result in the Class' early graduation. The Class of 1919 graduated on June 6, 1918, commissioning 199 new officers.
