 Philo McGiffin: A Man of Wit and Dash (2nd deck)

Philo McGiffin, Class of 1882, is known for his pranks while a midshipmen. However his wit, grit, and lessons learned at USNA served him well while in the Chinese Navy and at the Battle of Yalu River. McGiffin's story resonates today through midshipmen mischief, naval history, and international relations.

 Sea, Sun, and Space: Satellites from the Naval Research Laboratory (1st deck)


For more than 60 years, the Naval Research Laboratory (NRL) has used satellites for reconnaissance, weather and solar observation, communication and navigation. This exhibition highlights how questions of science can push technical developments and how new developments can open new fields of scientific study. Since each career path from the Naval Academy will be directly influenced by the work of NRL, we are glad to partner with them on this exhibition.
