 Additional Information
Last Known Activity
Captain George Andrew Alexander
35th Naval Governor of Guam

Alexander served as the Governor of Guam from June 21, 1933 to March 27, 1936. He supported the local effort to obtain United States citizenship for all residents of Guam, sending a petition requesting the right and signed by 2,000 Guamanians to the President of the United States. He revolutionized the Guam legal system, replacing old Spainish-style laws with the Code of Guam, a set of laws based on the California Codes. Though the Guam Museum opened in 1933, Alexander officially made it a government institution by executive order. Though the government of Guam recommended him for promotion to Rear Admiral, he retired from the Navy as a Captain. During WWI he commanded the USS Yacona providing Atlantic convoy service. His last command at sea was the USS Arizona BB-39.
