the  Clifton  Football  Club  of  Baltimore  8-0.  Eight years  later  came  the  first  football  game  between Annapolis and West Point, with the Navy winning 24-0. The  Naval  Academy  Athletic  Association  was founded  in  1892,  and  in  1894  Walter  B.  Izard  of the  Academy  set  a  new  world  record  for  the  50- yard swim. Following    the    Spanish-American    War,    an extensive   building   program   began.   Under   this program,  nearly  all  the  existing  buildings  at  the Academy   were    eventually    replaced    with    the French   Renaissance-style   buildings   that   stand today. The first  steps  toward  this  program  began in   1895   when   the   Academy’s   buildings   were condemned  as  a  menace  to  health  and  safety. Following  this,  Colonel  Robert  Means  Thompson, class   of   1868   and   a   member   of   the   Board   of Visitors, engaged a noted architect named Ernest Flagg. Flagg drew a plan for new buildings as well as  a  completely  new  arrangement  of  the  yard. Congress  approved,  and  in  1899  the  architect’s plans began to be carried out. By  this  time,  the  original  10-acre  yard  had been expanded greatly through various acquisitions (fig. 10-1).  The  mansion  and  gardens of  the  Governor  of  Maryland  were  purchased  in 1866, and 10 acres were purchased from St. John’s College  a  year  later.  In  1868  the  65  acres  now occupied by the Naval Academy cemetery and the naval  hospital  were  purchased.  More  land  was needed, however, and most of this was provided by the mud dredged out of Chesapeake Bay. During the early 1900s, a number of buildings were  completed  under  the  new  plan.  Dahlgren Hall  and  MacDonough  Hall  were  completed  in 1903;  Isherwood  Hall  and  the  officer’s  club  in 1905; and Bancroft Hall in 1906. The Administration  Building,  Mahan  Hall,  Sampson Hall, and Maury Hall were completed in 1907. Bancroft  Hall,  built  as  the  dormitory  for  all midshipmen, is the main building at the Academy. Six  wings  have  been  added  to  the  building  since 1906  to  keep  pace  with  the  brigade  expansion. Within  Bancroft  Hall  is   Memorial   Hall,   which pays tribute to American naval heroes. Its most 109.15 Figure 10-1.-An aerial view of the U.S. Naval Academy. 10-4
