From the 1953 Lucky Bag:


Philadelphia, Pennsylvania

Doc carried the honors of Girard College well after leaving in 1915. He spent four years in the regular Navy and qualified as P.C. before entering the Academy. His record at the Academy was highlighted by his stellar half-backing on the soccer team, his efficient organizing of the Public Relations Committee, and his avid studying of the Russian language. Hard work didn't faze him; he enjoyed working up a sweat. Doc maintained the "plebe thermocouple" to be a must for character building. His hobbies included dark room technique (Photographic Club) and the Aeronautical Engineering Club. Naval Aviation for him on graduation.

He was also a member of the 1st Battalion staff for the spring set
