The Naval Institute’s origins date to October 9, 1873, when 15 naval officers gathered at the U. S. Naval Academy’s Department of Physics and Chemistry building in Annapolis, Maryland for lively discussion of military history and strategy.
The founding vision was to create a forum for the exchange of ideas, to disseminate and advance the knowledge of sea power, and to preserve our naval and maritime heritage. The “proceedings” of those earliest discussions were eventually published and read throughout the fleet.
It was in the fleet, at the tip of the sword, where the value of the Naval Institute’s forum was truly felt. The impact of the new organization spread quickly and soon embraced all of the nation’s Sea Services – Navy, Marine Corps and Coast Guard. Today, the Naval Institute boasts more than 100,000 constituents worldwide. More
