The Class of 1959 website --established in 1997 by David Sullivan -- was one of the very first the Naval Academy published. Starting in 2015, the website was redone with continual plans to assure a fully functional, dynamic site in 2021. As of 2/02/2021 Class of '59 database statistics are in this pop-up. And, as of
January 30, 2021,
the updates and additions to this site are listed in this pop-up
most recent listed first. Note: Titles and text written in blue like this are links to a specific topic.

This interim site will be operational until the new Class of 1959 website is tested, reviewed and then approved by the Class Executive Committee.
The new site will be database driven, making it over time far less time consuming to maintain. Until the new comprehensive website is established, information maintained in the Transition interim site will include the following:
