was an admiral in the United States Navy and president of
Worcester Polytechnic Institute. When he died, he was the last
surviving officer of the sinking of the USS Maine.
Wat Tyler Cluverius, Jr.
An 1896 graduate of the United States Naval Academy, Cluverius
joined the crew of the USS Maine in 1897 and was on board when
the ship suffered an explosion in Havana Harbor in 1898. The
sinking of the Maine helped precipitate the Spanish–American War,
a war in which Cluverius participated on a number of ships
including USS Scorpion. During the Philippine–American War he
served in the on the USS Solace. In 1914, he took part in the United
States occupation of Veracruz, commanding a battalion of
bluejackets from the battleship USS North Dakota. During World
War I he commanded the minelayer USS Shawmut, laying the antisubmarine mine barrage across the North Sea, for which he was
awarded the Navy Distinguished Service Medal.
Cluverius was Commandant of Midshipmen at the Naval Academy
from 1919 to 1921, and attended the Naval War College from 1921
to 1922. He was aide to the Secretary of the Navy, Curtis D. Wilbur.
Promoted to flag rank in 1928, he was Commandant of the Norfolk
Navy Yard from 1928 to 1930, commanded Battleship Division
Two the Scouting Fleet from June to November 1930, and was
Chief of Staff to the Commander in Chief United States Fleet. He
was commandant of the Ninth Naval District and the Fourth Naval
District before retiring from the Navy on 1 January 1939. In
retirement, Cluverius became president of Worcester Polytechnic
Institute, but returned to active duty during World War II as
secretary of the Naval office of Public Information and as a member
of the Navy Board of Production Awards. In this capacity he was
involved in the conferring of Army-Navy "E" Awards.

Wat Tyler Cluverius, Jr. was born in New Orleans, Louisiana on 12
Legion of Honor (France)
December 1874, the son of Wat Tyler Cluverius, Sr., and his wife
Martha Lewis née Manning. He attended Tulane University before
being appointed to the United States Naval Academy at Annapolis,
Maryland, which he entered on 20 May 1892.
In those days, naval cadets—the rank of midshipman would not
exist for a few more years—by law had to serve for two years
before they were eligible to take the examinations for the rank of

ensign. Therefore, after graduation from the Naval Academy in
June 1896, Cluverius was posted to the cruiser USS Columbia. In 1897 joined the crew of the USS Maine. He was on
board on 15 February 1898 when the ship suffered an explosion in Havana Harbor. Cluverius made his way out,
splashing through water up to waist deep in the darkness, his path obstructed by wreckage. He joined other survivors on
deck, and was rescued by the SS City of Washington. He was one of only 89 survivors, of whom 18 were officers.
The loss of the Maine helped precipitate the Spanish–American War. Cluverius
saw action during the conflict on a number of ships including USS Scorpion, on
which he participated in the Second Battle of Manzanillo and the bombardments
of Santiago and Aquadores. Commissioned as an ensign, he served in the
Philippine–American War on the USS Solace in 1900. He then served on the
gunboat USS Newport.

In 1899, he became engaged to Hannah Walker Sampson, the daughter of Rear
Admiral William T. Sampson. The families knew each other well, and
Cluverius was an usher at the wedding of Hannah's sister Olive. On 5 April
1900, they were married in a ceremony at the Boston Navy Yard. Their
marriage produced two daughters, Elizabeth (Betty) and Martha, and a son, Wat
Tyler Cluverius III. Not only did their son become a naval officer, but both daughters married naval officers, John S.
Crenshaw and William S. Parsons respectively. Both sons in law later became admirals.
Cluverius served at the Naval Academy on court martial duty and as commander of the torpedo boat USS Talbot. He
became commander of the gunboat USS Alvarado in June 1901 and then the USS Sandoval in October. He joined the
torpedo boat USS Stockton in 1902. The next year he was promoted to lieutenant and was posted to the battleship
USS Maine, the namesake of the ship whose sinking he had survived in 1898, as an engineering officer. He was
involved with the 1904 sea trials of the cruisers USS Colorado and USS West Virginia before becoming senior
engineer of the monitor USS Arkansas. In 1908 he became senior engineer of the newly commissioned
Shore duty followed in 1909 as a member of the Naval Examining Board of the Special Service Squadron. For a short
time in 1910, Cluverius was navigator of the USS Massachusetts, an old battleship now used as a training ship for
midshipmen, before becoming Judge Advocate at the Court of Inquiry at the Philadelphia Navy Yard. He attended a
conference of officers at the Naval War College in Newport, Rhode Island from May until August 1911, and then
became Inspection Officer at the New York Navy Yard.

Cluverius, now a lieutenant commander, was posted to the battleship USS North
Dakota in March 1914. From July to October 1914, he took part in the United
States occupation of Veracruz, commanding a battalion of bluejackets that was
landed from the North Dakota. After returning to the ship he became its
executive officer until July 1915, when he became commander of the
USS Dubuque. He was then posted back to the Naval Academy as an
In November 1917, Cluverius became responsible for the conversion of the
steamer SS Massachusetts to a minelayer. The ship was commissioned on 7
December 1917, and renamed USS Shawmut on 7 January 1918. She steamed to
Britain in June 1918 and spent the rest of World War I laying the antisubmarine mine barrage across the North Sea. Shawmut laid 2,970 anchored

Officer of the French Legion of Honor, and Officer of the Belgian Order of Leopold and a Commander of the
Norwegian Order of St. Olav.
Cluverius commanded the cruiser USS Baltimore from February until June
1919, when he became Commandant of Midshipmen at the Naval Academy, a
post he held until 1921, when he left to attend the Naval War College. After
graduating in 1922, he became Chief of Staff of Commander Base Force,
Pacific Fleet. He commanded the cruiser USS Seattle from June to December
1923, when, following the usual pattern of sea duty alternating with shore duty,
he was posted to the office of the Chief of Naval Operations. He became aide to
the Secretary of the Navy, Curtis D. Wilbur.

Sea duty followed in 1926 as captain of the cruiser USS West Virginia. In
1928, he was promoted to rear admiral. He was one of only five captains
promoted that year, the others being Arthur Japy Hepburn, Harry E. Yarnell,
Albert Ware Marshall and Thomas Tingey Craven. He was Commandant of
the Norfolk Navy Yard from 1928 to 1930, and commanded Battleship Division
Two (BatDiv2) of the Scouting Fleet from June to November 1930. He then became Chief of Staff to the Commander
in Chief United States Fleet, Admiral Jehu V. Chase, who flew his flag from the battleship USS Texas, the ship on
which his son in law Deak Parsons was also serving.
Cluverius was Commandant of the Ninth Naval District from 1932 to 1935. As such, he was the US Navy
representative at the Century of Progress World's Fair in Chicago from 1933 to 1934. His last sea command was the
Base Force, United States Fleet, from 1935 to 1937. In June 1937 he became Commandant Fourth Naval District and
Philadelphia Navy Yard, a post he held until his retirement on 1 January 1939.
In retirement, Cluverius became president of Worcester Polytechnic Institute, in succession to Rear Admiral Ralph
Earle, a Naval Academy classmate who died in February 1939. Cluverius announced that his priority would be to
complete the building program envisaged by his predecessor. He began with a footbridge which was named in Earle's

Papers of President Wat Tyler Cluverius
President Wat Tyler Cluverius
These are records of WPI's seventh president, Wat Tyler Cluverius. They include biographical materials, correspondence, and related materials.
Wat Tyler Cluverius was born December 25, 1874, in New Orleans, Louisiana. In 1892 he received an appointment to the Naval Academy at Annapolis, from
which he graduated four years later. During the Spanish-American War, he served on the gunboat Scorpion in the Cuban campaign and in the Philippines.
After this, he returned to the Naval Academy as an instructor. When the Mexican campaign began in 1914, he was assigned to command the U.S.S. North
Dakota's landing battalion in taking Vera Cruz. After this, he returned to the Naval Academy as head of the engineering department.
During World War I, Captain Cluverius was commanding officer of the U.S.S. Shawmut, which engaged in mine-laying operations in the North Sea. After the
war, he returned to Annapolis and then commanded the cruiser Seattle, the battleship West Virginia, and other fleet units. He became Chief of Staff of the
United States Fleet in 1930, and later was Commandant of the Norfolk Navy Yard, commander of the second and fourth battleship divisions of the United States
Fleet, and Commandant of the Ninth Naval District at the Great Lakes, Illinois, and of the Fourth Naval District and Navy Yard at Philadelphia.
He retired as an Admiral from the Navy in 1938, after receiving the Distinguished Service Medal and honors from several European countries.
Wat Tyler Cluverius married Hannah Walker Sampson, daughter of Adminral William T. Sampson, in 1900. They had two daughters and a son. Mrs. Cluverius
died in 1938.
Admiral Cluverius became WPI's seventh President in 1939, succeeding Ralph Earle, who had been a classmate and friend at the Naval Academy. Expansion of
the campus was one of the President's priorities, and Alden Memorial and Earle Bridge were completed early in his tenure, and soon after Higgins Laboratories
for Mechanical Engineering was built.
During World War II, largely through President Cluverius's efforts, the Navy's V-12 program came to WPI, bringing students from other schools as well as
training WPI students in the program. All WPI's V-12 graduates received commissions in the Naval Reserve. President Cluverius served again with the Navy
during the war, first with the Navy's Office of Public Information and later with the Naval Board of Production Awards. After the war, a Reserve Officers
Training Corps was established at WPI.
After the war, President Cluverius began studies of "Tech's" academic programs. He led the effort to provide a building for the Civil Engineering Department,
Kaven Hall. The 1947-48 Endowment Fund Campaign, under his leadership, raised over $1,200,000 in a few months. President Cluverius's building plans
included an extension of Salisbury Laboratories, remodeling of Boynton Hall and Atwater Kent Laboratories, building another field house, campus lighting and
President Cluverius oversaw, along with industrial leaders, establishment of the School of Management in 1949.
On October 28, 1952, President Cluverius died suddenly of a heart attack while returning from a trip to Philadelphia. In the WPI Journal's tribute to him of
November that year, is the following: "Underlying a native dignity and aplomb was a dynamic personality, a tremendous vitality, an incredible zest for work and
accomplishment, and an enthusiasm that swept others along with him."

Admiral Cluverius said the court
