Stevens Middle School, originally Stevens Junior High School, derives its name from Isaac Ingalls Stevens of Massachusetts. After graduating from West Point in 1839, Stevens superintended fortifications on the New England coast and then assumed command of the coast survey office in Washington D.C. In 1853 he became the first Washington Territorial Governor and was tasked with opening and promoting the settlement of 100,000 square miles. In 1857 Stevens was elected Territorial Delegate to Congress and in 1861 was re-commissioned into the Union Army as the Civil War began. A participant of several battles, including the Battle of Port Royal, Stevens fell during the Battle of Chantilly at the age of 44.
