From the 1952 Lucky Bag:

Timothy Daniel Bartosh, Jr.

Granger, Texas

When T. D. left his home in Granger, Texas, for the Naval Academy, he thoughtfully brought along his Texas Almanac to prove that all he said about his home state was absolutely true. With three years of engineering completed at St. Mary's University, Tim found academics sheer fruit. Extracurricular activities included the Marching Band which he bolstered with his trumpet. In keeping with his academic keenness Tim was an active member of the Mechanical Engineering and Physics Clubs. Graduation will find him heading south once more, accompanied by a Baltimore miss who he has been dragging since youngster year. At Pensacola Tim will seek the golden wings of Naval aviation.

Tim was a member of the engineering club, a recipient of an “E Award,” and on the 15th Company staff (2nd set).
