Douglas MacArthur became superintendent in 1919, instituting sweeping reforms to the academic process, including introducing a greater emphasis on history and humanities .  He made major changes to the field training regimen and the Cadet Honor Committee was formed under his watch in 1922.   MacArthur was a firm supporter of athletics at the academy, as he famously said "Upon the fields of friendly strife are sown the seeds that, upon other fields, on other days, will bear the fruits of victory."  West Point was first officially accredited in 1925, and in 1933 began granting bachelor of science degrees to all graduates.  In 1935, the academy's authorized strength increased to 1,960 cadets.
