From the 1943 Lucky Bag:
Brockton, Massachusetts He answers, when awake, to the name Paul, and is a born athlete if ever there was one. Early in his career he had established himself as a swimmer, soccer player, and trackman. He specialized in the last two while at the academy, but eventually decided that the soccer field was too far to trek every afternoon. That narrowed his choice to the last, since swimming disturbed the inner workings of his head. When shin splints claimed another victim he was nonplussed, to say the least. How was he to achieve fame? Ha! Dear readers, his fame lies in this biography—in his efforts lie his renown.
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.
His wife was listed as next of kin.
