From the 1951 Lucky Bag:

James Edwin Stubbs, III

Colorado Springs, Colorado

Jim's main interest on entering the academy was football, but somehow he ended up pulling an oar . . . what the football team lost the crew squad gained, as "Bear" has never been out-worked . . . wherever he may be we know that his heart is on a ranch in Colorado ... if you are ever pressed for time, keep him from starting one of his "short" jokes . . . they are apt to last an hour . . . his penchant for practical jokes is well known . . . ask the mate of the deck who came back from a trip down the deck and found his desk missing ... or ask the roommate who came in just before taps and found a laundry basket where his bed usually stood.


Bear was lost when his training plane crashed near Milton, Florida, on June 25, 1952. He is buried in Colorado.
