Post Heinlein Is in This Picture
Over on Making Light, C. Wingate pointed out a recent Shorpy feature, saying, "Heinlein is in this picture. Somewhere."

C. Wingate would then be incorrect. According to Bill Patterson's biography, RAH departed Annapolis headed for Kansas City on June 3, 1929, three days before this event -- which he did not attend.

Aha! C. Wingate will be sorry to hear that.

Perhaps I should have checked. Will I be docked "Heinlein historian" points for having posted this?

It's an interesting photo, in any case.

Presumably a similar picture exists for the class of 1928, in which case RAH would be in the mass of midshipmen in the background.
