From the 1949 Lucky Bag:

Allan B. Cooper

Riverton, New Jersey

"A. B." came to us from Riverton, N. J. (We cannot find it in the latest atlas) after absorbing two years "doing or dying" for dear old Rutgers. A look at the back of Al's B-robe could tell you what his great interests was—sports. As varsity guard for three years on our championship 150 lb. football team, with battalion bowling and track in the spring, he was in shape from October until June Week. His wives were constantly annoyed by his huge correspondence with the fairer sex. He kept the Bancroft Hall post office busy with letters to all points in the U. S., and after our European cruises his postage stamp bills reached the proportions of our national budget. Al plans to enter the submarine service on graduation and with his friendliness and willingness to help others, his success is only a matter of time.

He was also a member of the Math Club and the 150 lb football team,
