From the 1942 Lucky Bag:

WARREN LEONARD ENGSTROM

Bud, Swede

Superior, Wisconsin, is where he hails from—superior, academically, is what he's hailed as. Worried none of the time, quiet most of the time, and practical all of the time, Bud's interests are quite varied, but he always enjoys athletics, and a good radio program. His general interest was in getting away from, rather than trying to beat, the system. Bud'll be there when it's "up anchor."

Battalion Baseball; Foreign Language Club 4, 3; Reception Committee 3, 2; 2 Stripes.

The Class of 1942 graduated on December 19, 1941, less than two weeks after the United States entered World War II. The class had previously been scheduled to graduate in February 1942.

Loss

Warren was lost when USS Northampton (CA 26) was sunk by Japanese surface gunfire on December 1, 1942 during the Battle of Tassafaronga.
