3101. Hartman, Capt Jeffrey D. USCG (Retired). U.S. Coast Guard Academy.

3101. Hartman, Capt Jeffrey D. USCG (Retired). U.S. Coast Guard Academy. Arcadia. 2020. 128p. Soft wraps. With over 200 vintage photographs. The predecessor of the U.S. Coast Guard, the Revenue Marine (later Revenue Cutter Service) was formed to enforce the U.S. customs laws. The officers for the service were drawn from the merchant marine, and occasionally the U.S. Navy. To ensure consistent training as the services evolved, the original Revenue Cutter School Of Instruction became the U.S. Coast Guard Academy, moving to its present location in New London, Connecticut, in 1932. Prior to that, instruction had been afloat on four different vessels, known as cutters, and ashore in New Bedford, Massachusetts; Curtis Bay, Maryland; and Fort Trumbull in New London. The training has grown from a two-year program, providing primarily practical seamanship, to one of the highest ranked small engineering undergraduate schools in the nation, offering nine majors and graduating male and female officers with a liking for the sea and its lore. The author Capt. Jeffrey D. Hartman, USCG (retired) is a helicopter pilot with 30 years of service. He graduated from the academy in 1963. He twice served on the US Coast Guard Academy Alumni Board of Directors, commanded an air station in Puerto Rico and had four tours in Alaska, including management of the emergency response program for the state waters. This compact volume features numerous early photographs, drawn from the author’s and other private collections, most never before published. Filled with rare and early views. (M). $21.99.
