FROM PDX RETRO ~

Political and educational leaders first began discussions for a day to honor
teachers in 1944.  In 1953, Eleanor Roosevelt persuaded the 81st Congress
to proclaim National Teachers’ Day.  Congress declared March 7, 1980, as
National Teacher Day. The National Education Association continued to
observe Teacher Day on the first Tuesday in March until 1985, when the
National PTA established Teacher Appreciation Week as the first full week
of May.  The NEA Representative Assembly then voted to make the Tuesday
of that week National Teacher Day.  National Teacher Day is an unofficial
national holiday.

ESTABLISHED ON THIS DAY IN 1845

The United States Naval Academy is a four-year coeducational federal service
academy
located in Annapolis, Maryland. It was established by then under
Secretary of the Navy George Bancroft. It is the second-oldest of the United 
States’ five service academies, and educates officers for commissioning 
primarily into the United States Navy and United States Marine Corps.



George Bancroft
(October 3, 1800 – January 17, 1891)
