From the 1945 Lucky Bag:

Paul Kenneth Hunt

Berkeley, California

"P. K." left the happy University of California only one step removed from the fellow who thought the Naval Academy was coeducational. The upper classmen took great pains to make sure that Ken found out about all the trials of plebe year. That they were successful in making "P. K." into a midshipman was evidenced by the number of stripes he wore on his blue service sleeve. Blessed with enviable athletic ability, "P. K." was at ease on almost any field of athletic endeavor. His staid qualities and reserved manner, along with his exceptional wit and amiable personality disclose a unique individual.

‘’Track 4; Battalion Track 3; Battalion Football 3, 1; Varsity Track 1; Company Representative 3; Class Ring Committee 3, 1; Boat Club 3, 1; Spanish Club 3, 1’’

He was the commander of the 2nd Battalion (2nd set).

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.
