EDWIN O. JOHNSON
The pride of Multnomah, bade farewell to his beloved Oregon, to his outdoor life as a horseman and skier, in pursuit of attaining the realization of his boyhood fancy, that of a naval career in aviation. Ed may be classified amongst those illustrious individuals who proclaimed the phrase,"Pensacola or bust." This has been his incentive and his presence at the Academy is the means to his end. He is energetic and gifted with the ability to perform any task he sets out to do. On the surface he assimilates the serious and looking closely into his character we see a truly smooth personality, which weighs decision on the scales of good judgment. Ed is congenial and always ready for a laugh. His ability to recognize the charm in womanhood is uncanny. His life at the Academy has not found him academically weak. He has never let himself stumble into the pit-falls of perfunctory routine to such an extent that he has lost insight into the broader outlook. Ed indeed plays a winning game with life.
The Class of 1941 was the first of the wartime-accelerated classes, graduating in February 1941.
His parents were listed as next of kin.
