OF THE many unique exhibits displayed at the Naval Academy on its ninetieth “birthday,” October, 10, 1935, one of the most effective was the Class Ring Collection. Not only did this exhibit, probably the first of its kind in Naval Academy history, attract much interest and attention from the thousands of visitors to the Academy on that date, but its assembly, which required some six months, disclosed much information relative to the general subject of class rings. This collection was unusual enough to warrant a brief description, and some of the information revealed should be recorded.
