From the 1944 Lucky Bag:

Charles Clark Miller

Fairhaven, Massachusetts

Ah! Listen to those dulcet tones. Is it Caruso? No, it will be Chuck Miller, our local "Johnny-one-note." The chantys that he warbled came direct from the Merchant Marine. Being an old salt and a near-"savior" made academics rather easy for Charlie. He always had lots of time left over in which to enjoy life. Variety was certainly the spice of life for Chuck. Having given the sea a trial, he hopes to become a marine with his own blue water schooner to remind him of the years that he spent with the Navy. At any rate we know that Chuck will fit in wherever he goes.

He was also a member of the soccer team.

The Class of 1944 was graduated in June 1943 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.

Life & Loss

Unable to find any information about Charles' life or loss. That he doesn’t appear in the list of WWII casualties would suggest his loss was operational, but unable to confirm.
