From the 1945 Lucky Bag:

George Hardy Webster

Northfield, Vermont

Born in Vermont, George was a true yankee, which meant his first love was skiing. In between skiing seasons George managed to attend Duke University for two years. He entered the Naval Academy bringing his love of skiing, dragging and eating with him. During Youngster and Firstclass year it was a hungry plebe who had to eat on his table. Since his main interest in the Academic Department was in learning rather than in working for a grade, he always just missed starring but was always in the upper half of his class. Behind his serious face was an easy going disposition which won him many warm friends and will make him a welcome addition to the Fleet.

German Club 4, 3; Plebe Crew, Varsity Wrestling 3

He was a member of the 3rd Company staff (2nd set).

The Class of 1945 was graduated in June 1944 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
