Rear Admiral Sheldon Hoard Kinney of Annapolis, Maryland (1918 -2004) pursued a naval career for 38 years, including distinguished combat service in three wars taking him from Signalman to command of 125 ships and 65,000 officers and crew of the Cruiser-Destroyer Force of the Pacific Fleet. He also served as the Navy’s Chief of Education and Training, and as Commander of Midshipmen at the Naval Academy.

Following his Navy retirement in 1972, Admiral Kinney served as President of the State University of New York (SUNY) Maritime College at Fort Schuyler for ten years. He was a founder and later Rector (President) of World Maritime University in Malmö, Sweden.

Further, he served as Special Advisor to the Secretary General of the IMO in London, and following his retirement from WMU, Admiral Kinney founded and became President of the US Friends of World Maritime University, a Washington-based non-profit organization, which has provided invaluable support to WMU ever since.

World Maritime University has established the Sheldon Kinney Doctoral Fellowship, tenable from 2005 by an outstanding WMU graduate. The fellowship will provide a fitting and permanent tribute to one of WMU’s most distinguished Rectors and Founding Fathers.
