From the 1950 Lucky Bag:
GEORGE WASHINGTON DUNCAN, JR.
Ever since the first day when George joined the Brigade, he has had his up's and down's. He fell in for his first formation in a white sailor's hat, unstenciled white works, and without the least idea of what his company assignment was. But undaunted and carefree as he is, he can be just as earnest and concerned. Before his Academy days, George gathered laurels from many states' various track championships. He carried this ability of his to Thompson Stadium to become one of our Track Team mainstays. Easygoing, likeable, subtle in all his ways, that's Dune.
From USNA 1950:
George died at Mildenhall, England from injuries sustained in the accident of an aircraft which he commanded.
