This month’s cover features one of the many photographs taken by Janis Krastins depicting campus life at SUNY Maritime College between 1960 to the early 1980s. Krastins was an avid photographer who came to the United States from Latvia after World War II.

In the late 1970s, Krastins joined cadets (students) and crew aboard the Empire State V training ship. He captured the mundane of their daily lives above and below deck, drills and traditions, and the humor of a unique experience.
