Global Reach of the U.S. Navy, September 1959

“My first introduction to National Geographic came in the guise of a map. Before there was such a thing as English for Speakers of Other Languages (ESOL) courses, teachers like my 2nd grade teacher, Mrs. Barber (Fulford Elementary School, North Miami Beach, Florida), took the time to seek what interested such students most. For me it was maps, with this one in particular becoming one of my first cartographically centered English primers.”
