'59 Website in Transition

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 5/14/2022 Class of '59 database statistics are in this pop-up with the memorial additions to this site listed here most recent listed first.
