From the 1945 Lucky Bag:
John Oliver Horn
"Skipper," a curly black-headed southern gentleman, gave up a medical career to follow the life of the sea. He has an Omar Khayyam outlook on life, believing that women, and song" are the essence of this and that even the gloomiest situation rates a laugh. One could usually find "Squaw" eating or sleeping, as it seemed that he never got enough of either. He spent much of his time in yacht racing and sailing the yawls and ketches. He also found time for the Glee Club, Model Club, Photographic Club, Radio Club, and Boat Club. He never missed a hop or dragging on weekends. "Skipper" is quick and efficient in doing his work and will undoubtedly be welcomed aboard any naval nesse
