As the U.S. Naval Academy gears up for Commissioning Week and the Graduation Ball, what better time to post some vintage dating dos and don’ts from Midshipmen Wrong and Right?
Courtesy of our colleagues in the National Archives’ Motion Picture Preservation Lab we present How to Succeed with Brunettes (1967), a film produced by the Navy that demonstrates proper dating etiquette for officers. Part of a recent accession of military instructional films from the Defense Visual Information Center (DVIC), the somewhat dated film features wonderful music, evocative of its era, and a fair bit of comedy, both intentional and unintentional.
Be sure to check back - we’ll be posting more vintage Dating Dos and Don’ts over the next few days!
My thoughts on the Yahoo / Tumblr deal summed up in a text message exchange.
I’m willing to wait out the email address thing. I use my Yahoo account just enough that it won’t go away.

I find this weirdly fascinating
yOU KNOW YOU CAN LEAVE OKAY
“I am probably one of the few professors you will meet who can say I understand your situation. Remember I flunked design too. But I have to say that if I had not flunked design twice, needless to say, I don’t think I’d be where I am today. I am not where I would like to be yet. But I believe I will get there. Architecture is attrition after all. Hadid, 58. Pei, 49. Gehry, 53. Etc. The profession you want to get into is not for wimps or the easily discouraged. Keep at it. Some of you are smarter than me when I was your age. You’ll do better next time. I am sure.
By the way, I offered to teach design 5 if it is offered this coming term. If you guys take it, it will be a very different experience. It won’t be easy but it will be one of the best.
Enjoy your break. You deserve it even with what happened. After all, hindi lang ang pumapasa ang kailangan ng pahinga.”
Backstory: scatteredhair and I didn’t make the cut in our Design class, among with a few others. Just before the posting of grades, she asked our professor, through email, for her final grade. This inspiring message is what she got.
To our professor, Arch. Aristedes De Paz, thank you.

Spanish Court Sword
- Dated: third quarter of the 19th century
The elaborately cast grip with crown pommel, the guard with the badge of the Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulcher of Jerusalem enameled in orange. Straight, double-edged blade struck, “FABRICA DE TOLEDO 1868” at the forte.
- The Equestrian Order of the Holy Sepulchre of Jerusalem (Latin: Ordo Equestris Sancti Sepulcri Hierosolymitani, OESSH) is a Roman Catholic order of knighthood under the protection of the pope. It traces its roots to Duke Godfrey of Bouillon, principal leader of the First Crusade.
- In 1496, Pope Alexander VI created the office of Grand Master of the Order, and the office vested in the papacy. The office of Grand Master remained vested in the papacy until 1949. Since then a cardinal has been grand master. The Pope is sovereign of the Order, and it enjoys the protection of the Holy See and has its legal seat at Vatican City.
- Five major orders were formed in the Holy Land between the late 11th century and the early 12th century: the Knights of the Holy Sepulchre (circa 1099), Knights Templar (circa 1118), Knights Hospitaller (circa 1099) (St John), Knights of the Hospital of St Mary of Jerusalem (Teutonic Knights) and Knights of St Lazarus.
