Faculty - ROC Instructors
The staff of the Reserve Ofticer Candidate School is composed
primarily of Naval Reserve Officers called into active duty for
this school. The Navy searches out the best of the nation's
educators to staff the program. In civilian life, the list of their
vocations include department heads from various universities,
and colleges. ln the roster are superintendents of schools,
athletic directors, principals of high schools, members of
boards of education, professors, doctors of education and
Many of the staff have served the Navy before in school-
ing the members of the fleet. A number of this years' officers

lncluded in the staff of the '52 ROC School were many
reserve Chiefs and first class and second class ratings who
elected to fill their annual training duty by service at the
school. These petty officers who had filled similar billets both
ashore and afloat during the war were a valuable asset in
training in technical aspects of the Navy.
