Lucky Bag

From the 1922 Lucky Bag:


Edward was lost on November 18, 1926 when the plane he was aboard crashed near Naval Station Norfolk, Virginia. The pilot, a classmate of his, survived.

Edward was married, but his wife seems to have died of complications from childbirth in January 1923 — only a few days following the death of their newborn.

His ring is in the collection of the Naval Academy Museum. Edward is buried in Louisiana.
