Aggies by the Sea tells the story of Texas AaM University at Galveston, an unusual educational institution that began operation in 1962 as a maritime academy with only twenty-three students and now enrolls more than 1600 undergraduates studying the sciences, technology, business, and cultural aspects of the sea. Ninety-one photographs portray the growth of the Galveston school from its humble beginnings to what it is today: a four-year university, nationally prominent for its focus on the world's oceans. Filled with lively anecdotes, reminiscences, and biographical sidebars, this lavishly illustrated book presents history with a bounce. While its appeal will be targeted to those who have passed through Galveston's program, the record it preserves also records an important chapter in the story of the state of Texas' public university armada.In August, 1973, when I began my teaching career as an instructor in the Moody College of Marine Sciences and Maritime Resources ... questions or were interviewed for this book: Milton Abelow, Jane Bedessem Carpenter, John Calhoun, Ted Chang, William Clayton, ...
