From the 1943 Lucky Bag:

MORGAN LEWIS BRETT, JR.

Palo Alto, California

From the Santa Clara Valley and Stanford this "Army Brat" came to join us at Annapolis. Happy in the Sierras or with classical music, Sooby was the quiet type, except when he broke forth whistling some favorite theme. When free from extra-duty, his extra-curricular activities included afternoons of battalion tennis and evenings with the sound unit concerts. Occupied thus, he preferred to buy record albums with his spare cash, rather than to drag—excepting a chosen few. Beneath a quiet nature lies a sense of humor and an appreciation of the finer things of life, giving Sooby a personality well liked by all who know him.

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.

Life & Loss

Unable to find any information about Morgan's life or loss. He is listed as wounded at some point during the war; as he appears on the Memorial Hall killed in action scroll, presumably his death was from wounds sustained during the war.

He is buried in California.

Based on the order of appearance in Memorial Hall, suspect injuries were sustained between April 6 and May 3.
