S Coast Guard Academy at New London, Connecticut. The Academy is the subject of the pictorial, which begins on page 60 of this issue. Photograph by Chief Photographer's Mate William M. Powers, USN.

Table of Contents


  • Eisenhower at the Naval War College
    Gen. of the Army Dwight D. Eisenhower
    Most of the major problems that the former President discussed candidly with a predominantly military audience in 1961 still trouble America ten years later.
  • Trends in World and Domestic Fisheries
    Cdr. J. H. Johnson, USNR
    The explosive development of foreign fishing activity in recent years, especially the rapid expansion of foreign fishing off our shores, is but one indication of the sorry state of U. S. fisheries.
  • Professionalism: The Hard Choice
    Col. F. C. Thayer, USAF (Ret.)
    Much of the present disrespect for the military may stem from those officers who, awed by glib civilian superiors, tried to look, talk, and even think like them.
  • The Bear That Swims Like a Fish
    Rear Adm. Kemp Talley, USN (Ret.)
    The grateful Arab states may repay the Soviet bear by permitting him to use the Suez Canal as a springboard to catapult himself into the Indian Ocean.
  • Time to Change
    Lt. Cdr. E. L. Frasier, USN (Ret.)
    Small wonder our country seems to be in such a mess! Our speedometers, rulers, altimeters, protractors, compasses, and clocks are all fouled up.
  • Sundowner Par Excellence
    Adm. J. J. Clark, USN (Ret.)
    Those who knew him well, the author among them, knew that Ernest J. "Jesus" King couldn't walk on water; but he could do almost anything else on it—and under it and over it.
  • Pictorial—The U. S. Coast Guard Academy
    Text by Lt. (j.g.) R. J. Pratte, USCG
    Photography by Chief Photographer's Mate William M. Powers, USN.

The Folks Behind the GG Archives

The GG Archives is the work and passion of two people, Paul Gjenvick, a professional archivist, and Evelyne Gjenvick, a curator. Paul earned a Masters of Archival Studies - a terminal degree from Clayton State University in Georgia, where he studied under renowned archivist Richard Pearce-Moses. Our research into the RMS Laconia and SS Bergensfjord, the ships that brought two members of the Gjønvik family from Norway to the United States in the early 20th century, has helped us design our site for other genealogists. The extent of original materials at the GG Archives can be very beneficial when researching your family's migration from Europe.
