From the 1946 Lucky Bag:
Oliver Thomas Johnson
Just ambling along, never taking a strain, that's O. T. He was in the Naval R.O.T.C. for two years at Oklahoma University, where he became very much interested in the Navy and thus entered the Naval Academy. O. T. takes the academics in his stride; although he did have a few tough rounds with the Dago Department. He has a natural affinity for dragging and hasn't done so bad for himself along that line. O.T. has a disposition that has won him many friends and we feel that these friendships will grow stronger with the passing of time.
The Class of 1946 was graduated in June 1945 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
