From the 1942 Lucky Bag:
WILLIAM MARTIN YEAGER
When we met Willie we all knew that the "best" didn't always come from the home state. He is truly a genius at making friends. His ready humor and good nature have carried and will continue to carry him through many a trying moment. His name does not appear at the top of the academic list, but when the last count is taken you can bet he'll have a prominent place.
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.
He was survived by his wife, who passed away in 2002 and is buried near him.
One of his sons, William Martin Yeager, Jr., was engaged to be married in 1967. Another son's name was Daniel.
