From the 1946 Lucky Bag:
Wayne Hjalmar Swanson
Fort Morgan, Colorado
Although not a Red Mike at heart, this son of Sweden usually found dragging "too much trouble." His chief week-end interest was "seein' the shows with the boys." "Rock" came to Annapolis straight from high school, but had little trouble keeping right on the heels of the brains in his class. According to this sack drill artist, a few months of prep school in Southern California convinced him that the land of perpetual sunshine is almost as nice as Colorado. A winning smile and a cheery disposition, plus brains and brawn, forecast smooth sailing for "Rock" on any sea.
The Class of 1946 was graduated in June 1945 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
