From the 1953 Lucky Bag:

WILLIAM GORDON KIRK

Drexel Hill, Pennsylvania

Originally slated for the Coast Guard Academy, Bill spent a year in prep school to get in shape for Navy. Quick to make friends, his inherent good humor always got the best of his momentary flashes of temper. A partial sand-blower, he nevertheless was a bundle of energy when it came to pursuing his favorite pastime, obtaining more advertising for the LOG. Few indeed were the days that did not bring with them new ideas along that line. In the sporting category, boxing and sailing were his chief likes. His ambitions included a pair of Navy wings over his breast pocket.
