Robert W. Piazza

Jim Bryant ('56E), a 1956 graduate in Marine Engineering, is Cal Maritime’s 2014 Distinguished Alumnus Award winner.  He received the award at the 2014 Commencement, and will return to campus for recognition at Homecoming this fall.

Bryant and classmate Gordon White were key members of the team that founded the California Maritime Academy Foundation.

Bryant went on to serve two terms as chairman of the Foundation Board, and he has been an active participant in Alumni Association and Foundation efforts continuously for 40 years. He actively solicits the donation of yachts to Cal Maritime which are converted into scholarships for cadets.

Bryant had a 50-year career in the sales and marketing of air and gas handling equipment, culminating in co-ownership of Advanced Engineering Sale in Tiburon. Prior to that, he served in the United States Navy as a repair division officer.

In recent years, Bryant helped organize the Cal Maritime Cosmic Marching and Chowder Society, which meets quarterly and maintains a meaningful connection between the Academy and its senior graduates.
