Publications Archive

The intent behind this archive is to assemble on-line, those documents which help to explain how West Point has evolved over the years. There have been many significant changes, and the issues which caused them may not be familiar to graduates from earlier years. There is a good bit of work required to scan these documents into HTML format for the web, but we will progress as we have the capability. Paul Werner '83 is our project manager for this. Should you have a suggestion for additional documents, contact Jack Price to have them considered.
