From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
BRUCE MORTON McKALSON
Big, blond, and terrific, but he could never convince himself that the col- lege man doesn't have the advantage over the midshipman. That's the fel- low the men in '42 (and also certain nearby and far-away young ladies) have come to know and love. While pulling a rugged crew oar and main- taining his academic and femme standing, he has built up an enviable circle of friends among the men of the Regiment.
Crew 4, 3, 2, 1; NA-10; 2 Stripes.
The Class of 1942 graduated on December 19, 1941, less than two weeks after the United States entered World War II. The class had previously been scheduled to graduate in February 1942.
From Find A Grave:
He became an aviator and was killed when his plane was involved in a non-hostile accident.
It appears he served aboard USS Salt Lake City (CL 25) for nine months from February through November, 1942.
