Who's Who in Navy Blue
By John Phillip Sousa

Sousa composed Who's Who in Navy Blue as the result of a request from Midshipman W.A. Ingram, President of the Class of 1920 at the U.S. Naval Academy in Annapolis. It had become a custom for each graduating class to have its own "new" song or march performed at graduation. Since Sousa had served in the Navy in World War I, this was a logical request. Sousa had a difficult time selecting a title for his march -- eventually deciding on Who's Who in Navy Blue and dedicating the march to Tecumseh, the famous Indian statue that stands outside Bancroft Hall at the Academy.
