History

Cal Maritime was established as the California Nautical School in 1929 when the California State Assembly Bill no. 253 was signed into law by Governor C. C. Young. The bill authorized the creation of the school, appointment of a Board of Governors to manage the school and the acquisition of a training vessel. The school's mission was "to give practical and theoretical instruction in navigation, seamanship, steam engines, gas engines, and electricity in order to prepare young men to serve as officers in the American Merchant Marine." By 1930 a training vessel and a school site was acquired, the original location of what would become Cal Maritime was California City (now Tiburon, California) in the San Francisco Bay Area. Clement Calhoun Young (April 28, 1869 – December 24, 1947) was the Governor of the U.S. state of California between 1927 and 1931. ... A View of Downtown Tiburon, near the Ferry Docks. ...

Due to the Great Depression, the early days of the Academy was full of financial uncertainty. As early as 1933 state legislators would call for the abolishment of the school. In order to save on costs the cadets and instructors both lived and held classes onboard the training vessel, the T.S. California State. Only after the passage of the Merchant Marine Act of 1936 did the funding for the Academy become stabilized. The Great Depression was a time of economic down turn, which started after the stock market crash on October 29, 1929, known as Black Tuesday. ... The Merchant Marine Act of 1936 is a United States federal law. ...


In 1939 the California Nautical School changed its present name, the California Maritime Academy. By 1940 the Academy was granting Bachelor of Science degrees and Naval Reserve commissions to its graduates, this marked the beginning of the transition from a trade school to a university. During World War II the Academy was evicted from its site in California City and moved to its present location in Vallejo, California in 1943.

After surviving another round of budget cuts and calls for the Academy's abolishment in the 1970s Cal Maritime became a four-year institution. The 1970s also marked the time when the first minority and female cadets graduated from Cal Maritime.


In 1995 Cal Maritime became the twenty second campus of the California State University system. The current training vessel is the T.S. Golden Bear (The third training ship to hold that name).
