From the 1953 Lucky Bag:
GLENN ALFRED WILSON
Beaver Falls, Pennsylvania
Glenn A. Wilson, known to all as "Hacker," hails from BeaverFalls, Pennsylvania. One of the most natural and versatile athletes to step on a field, he had a hand in soccer, baseball, and football. Football made him one of the all time "star men" of the excused squad. He was a real champion of the "beat the system course." When this future fly-boy is around, you can be sure there'll be a good time.
He was also captain of the soccer team.
Glenn was lost when his S2F-1 Sentinel crashed while operating from USS Antietam (CV 36) in the North Atlantic on June 7, 1956. Three others aboard were also killed. He has a memory marker in Pennsylvania.
Charles Liebhauser '42 was also lost in this crash.
