Significance: The Academic Group is one of the three centerpieces of Ernest Flagg's grandiose plan for the Naval Academy. The interconnected group of three buildings closes off the northwest end of the quadrangle, and faces Bancroft Hall on axis. Although the group is less grand than originally envisioned by the architect, it remains a major American example of the Beaux-Arts style.
