The name of NPS Archive: Calhoun honors Naval Postgraduate School Professor Guy K. Calhoun (1889-1920), professor of Mathematics, and the first appointed -- and published -- NPS scholarly author.
This earliest known appointment for a Naval Postgraduate School professor occurred on May 6, 1910 when the 61st Congress approved Ensign Guy K. Calhoun as “professor of mathematics in the navy.”
Following his 1908 graduation from the Naval Academy, Prof. Calhoun made extensive computations to develop a set of mathematics tables that proved to be highly useful to navigators.
His work, Products of Arcs and Sines of 15-Degree Rhumbs was published by the Government Printing Office in 1910. It remains in print to the present day. (Read it at OpenLibrary.)
Prof. Calhoun’s Congressional appointment, discovered by NPS Mathematics Faculty member Carlos Borges, sheds new light on the process of faculty hiring at Annapolis. (At the time of his appointment, NPS was called the School of Marine Engineering and was co-located with the Naval Academy at Annapolis.)
