A salty, solid southerner from Richmond, Virginia—that's our Joe. Unruly hair, a twinkle in his eye, a glib tongue, and perfect dancing made him a success with the fair sex. Joe came to us from the fleet via the Norfolk Naval Academy Preparatory School to establish himself as one of the most popular members of our class. Plebe year found him on the cross country course and later in the boxing ring. Youngster year he was still in the squared circle, and was also representing his company. Most every weekend some sweet young thing had him in tow, otherwise he was out sailing, playing tennis, or reading some good book.
The Class of 1943 was graduated in June 1942 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
