From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
CORNELIUS DION O'SULLIVAN
Sully, Curly, O'Banion
Born in San Francisco, Sully began college life at the University of California and has had little trouble standing at the top of the class. Sully climaxed four years of crew by becoming the Academy's No. 1 oarsman and captain. His unruly hair has been a problem, but he manages to divert attention with his contagious smile. Make one derogatory remark about California and you will have a fighting Irishman on your hands.
Football 4, 42; Crew 4, 3, 2, 1, N, Captain; Stars 4; Orchestra 4, 2; 4 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.
His wife was listed as next of kin.
