US Military Academy at West Point/The Honorable William Rawles


Dear Sirs:

Was the work by Mr. William Rawles (1750-1836) on our American Constitution used as a teaching guide at West Point?  

Your assistance in this matter is greatly appreciated,

AW Miller, Jr.

Hi, Arthur, it's good to hear from you.  Thanks for your interest in West Point.

Unfortunately I don't know the answer to your question beyond the fact that Mr Rawle's work was not used when I was there from 1966 to 1970.

Beyond that I suggest that you contact the Special Collections and Archives branch of the Academy Library.  If anyone has such information, they will.  You can reach them as follows:

Sorry I could not be of more assistance, Arthur.  Good luck in your research.

Best Regards,

US Military Academy at West Point

I can answer questions about admissions to West Point; about the history of West Point; about how to travel to West Point, where to eat, where to stay, etc.; and about West Point`s alumni organization, the West Point Association of Graduates.


I am a 1970 Graduate of West Point. I served six years on active duty and another 8 years in the active reserve. I have been actively involved as a Field Admissions Representative for over 20 years and have participated on my Congressman's Academy Selection Panel for over 25 years. I am actively involved in West Point Alumni affairs, serving in roles both with the West Point Association of Graduates and the local alumni chapter in Annapolis, MD. I also have two sons who graduated from West Point in 1995 and 2001. Both are veterans of the Iraq War and Afghanistan War. The 1995 Grad continues to serve on Active Duty in the Army.
