McCready, Kings Point Professor and Head of Engineering, 1942-1975 "Much more than an institutional history ...a fascinating and informed portrait of the individuals and philosophies behind Kings Point." --Captain Warren G. Leback, Kings Point '44, past Maritime Administrator and industry leader "Well-written and meticulously researched ...A must-read for any maritime history buff." --Captain Arthur R. Moore, Kings Point '44, author of A Careless Word ...A Needless Sinking "The best description of the merchant marine in the last seventy-five years, and the best account of why Kings Point became so important to our national security and economy." --George R. Searle, past president, American Merchant Marine Veterans of World War II
