LEWIS EDWARD PENNELL
Columbia, South Carolina
"Lewie" is a southerner of the old school who spent a good part of his life at the academy correcting the widespread misconception that Charleston is the capital of South Carolina. His inherent southern hospitality found an outlet in the Reception Committee over the weekends. Week day afternoons were not complete without their round of bridge or game of handball, but the varied activities of the Boat Club could make him forget either. Evenings found him occupied with the Log or the Stamp Club. In spite of his extra-curricular activities and a propensity for Amazing Stories he still found time to star.
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.
