From the 1945 Lucky Bag:

Edward Hamilton Morgan

Pasadena, California

Although the Severn could not furnish the smooth beaches and the pounding suri of his beloved California, "Morg's" love of the water made him choose crew for a sport. Because he was earnest in it, as in all things, and a leader the team made him its captain. Girls were attracted to him and Ham (that's what his Dad calls him) never seemed to be able to get them to leave. Always a humorist, Ed was at his best those first few minutes after reveille. "Death" (short for Death Valley), somehow unable to separate himself voluntarily from his sack that early in the morning, started each day off merrily. The Naval Academy has lost a most ardent supporter. Bon voyage, Ed. See you again, soon.

Crew 4, 3, 1, "N", Captain
