On This Day in American History
On July 6, 1976, US Naval Academy admits women for the first time in its history with the induction of 81 female midshipmen. Four years later, Elizabeth Anne Rowe will be the first woman member of the class to graduate. Four years after that, Kristine Holderied (pictured with President Ronald Reagan in 1984) will be the first female midshipman to graduate at the top of her class.

In Annapolis, Maryland, the United States Naval Academy admits women for the first time in its history with the induction of 81 female midshipmen. In May 1980, Elizabeth Anne Rowe became the first woman member of the class to graduate. Four years later, Kristine Holderied became the first female midshipman to graduate at the top of her class.

The U.S. Naval Academy opened in Annapolis in October 1845, with 50 midshipmen students and seven professors. Known as the Naval School until 1850, the curriculum included mathematics, navigation, gunnery, steam, chemistry, English, natural philosophy, and French. The Naval School officially became the U.S. Naval Academy in 1850, and a new curriculum went into effect requiring midshipmen to study at the Academy for four years and to train aboard ships each summer–the basic format that remains at the academy to this day.
