Shoemaker. On Sunday, June 28, 1931 at Naval Hospital, Washington, D.C., Ensign Cassin T. Shoemaker, United States Navy, only child of Mr. and Mrs. Carl T. Shoemaker, aged twenty-two years and six months.
Unable to find any other details or reason for his hospitalization. The Register of Alumni does not give any information beyond his rank and date of death.
Given that it was only a few weeks after his graduation — and that it was in his hometown and not a fleet concentration area or training base — suspect strongly it was not operational in nature.
