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 2022.  As of 12/17/2021 Class of '59 database statistics are in this pop-up with the memorial additions to this site listed here most recent listed first.

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:
