Evolution of War Gaming

LUCE HALL, ca. 1905-06

This photograph shows a war game in Luce Hall during the academic year 1905-06. A distinctive stage in the development of war gaming is shown, with a game director and umpire on the raised platform. The game is being played on a board with small model ships on a grid. The blackboard shows that it is a game involving “Blue” (U.S.) and “Red” (British) naval forces.
