From the 1952 Lucky Bag:

Lucien Peter Borden

Colorado Springs, Colorado

L. P. entered Bancroft's halls with an eager look, a brightly polished Eagle Scout ring, and two volumes of high school photographs gripped under his right arm. It is said that Pete's three day routine was spent papering his locker door with pictures of the fair and innocent of fabulous Colorado Springs. The OAO, however, always stood number one in Don Borden's little black book. Since he lived from one leave to the next, our hero paid little heed to the multitude of academics which filled the void in between but he managed to terrorize the Math Department by scoring several near misses on their unattainable 4.0 exam grade. He will have many friends in the Navy.

He was also a member of the 1st Regimental Staff (2nd set).


L.P. was lost when his F2H Banshee crashed near Fallon Air Force Base, Nevada, on June 30, 1955. He was survived by his wife, Jeanne; though she remarried, they are buried together in Arlington National Cemetery.
