From the 1949 Lucky Bag:

Richard H. Seth


John Hopkins really lost a favorite son when Dick left the Phi Gamm house to join the "country club" set. He really took a mean strain on each physical to stretch through with his five foot six longitudinal axis, but that same axis spelled doom to those who would put the ball through a lacrosse goal when Dick was in the net. For four years the "Stopper" proved that he was one of the best goalies in the business. With no academic worries, he found his only trouble in life was his constant inability to keep one girl from finding out when he was dragging her best friend. In the future we will remember that wine, women, song, and food put an identifying mark on Dick—wine and women to start the evening off, song to give atmosphere and food to end it well.

Dick was a member of the lacrosse team.


From USS Haynsworth Association newsletter: "Dick Seth---went to aviation and lost at sea in a carrier landing." Unable to find any further information. 1949's class history indicates incident was off Greece.


Dick won the Ensign C. Markland Kelly, Jr. Award for the top lacrosse goalkeeper in 1949.
