From the 1945 Lucky Bag:

Michael Joseph Kane

Hartford, Connecticut

"Let me go down to the sea in ships" is undoubtedly the predominant wish of this strapping Connecticut Irishman. Instilled with a great Navy spirit, "Killer" would need only a few minutes, and he could sell the Navy to any man. Mike's greatest asset is his profound determination to learn everything there is to know about his profession. Easy-going and with a great sense of humor, his troubles with the Academic Department were as few as with the fairer sex. Mike's great qualities will see him far, and in all seriousness and with due respect to a great roommate, I know no man whom I would rather see wearing the gold braid of a naval officer.

Varsity Rifle Team 4, 3, 1, 2r45t; Battalion Crew 1; Glee Club 1; Lucky Bag 1; French Club 4, 3; Radio Club 4; Newman Club 4, 3, 1.

The "2r45t" is not a transcription error; unclear what it indicates.

The Class of 1945 was graduated in June 1944 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
