From the 1944 Lucky Bag:
John Calusel Adams, Jr.
That striking flash of determination in his gray eyes is what one first spots in Jay. He's an Alabama rebel, but lacks that "deep" accent, which he lost somewhere in his wanderings as a Navy junior. A gifted story teller, he was always the center of good company. Though adapted to lacrosse and football, Jay was fascinated by the gym, especially liked rope-climbing. If we're not shipmates with him again, we'll remember his geniality, his ability to stick by his guns, and that flare for grasping the details of the how and the why of things, which will carry him far in our Navy.
The Class of 1944 was graduated in June 1943 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
He was survived by his wife, Mrs. Barbara Griffith Adams.
