From the 1940 Lucky Bag:
RALPH OLAUS ANDERSON, JR.
Andy: a man who flows through life waging a constant war against any theoretical knowledge not capable of being proved before his eyes. His practical insight is tremendous and when he allows theory and practice to merge, his results are on a plane far above the average. He drifts, yes, but with this drifting his mind constantly piles up positive information that someday can make his name renowned. Aerodynamics have claimed the principal part of his time for four years and constantly appearing professional periodicals have engendered thought germs which will place him high in his chosen field — aviation.
Andy was lost in an aircraft accident at Lee Field, FL, on July 4, 1943.
