I can add a little bit more

The Charles G Stevenson Memorial Award is given to the Senior Class Cadet in charge of the Fine Arts Forum or something like that.

It is still given out during June week at the Commandant's Awards

I could never find out why, since he was a 3 sport letterman.  

Both he and his sone are buried at the West Point cemetery.

I sadly did not graduate from the Point

I am an assistant professor in the Department of English and Philosophy at West Point, and "googled" the Charles G. Stevenson Award and found this posting.

The award is still in existence--it is awarded every year to the "president of the Cadet Fine Arts Forum."   It was established in 1972. I have been the Officer-in-charge of this forum for 3 years, but I do not have any other historical information on the award than that.

Folks, I had a very close relationship with Charles G. Stevenson, sort of an uncle/nephew honorary relationship as my father and he had been friends in WWII.  Let me know if I can add any personal info.  James H. Ryan, PhD, LTC US ARMY RETIRED, PETERSBURG VA

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.
