1947 Larzalere LB.jpg

Charles Reid Larzalere

Hays, Kansas

With a personality as easy-going and gentle as the plains of Kansas, Lere made many friends at the Academy. Always a good man in a bull session, he never neglected to advance his opinions strongly. Basketball held his main interest in sports during the long weeks of the winter, and the week-ends found him pursuing the art of dragging, although he has yet to discover that certain one. Lere never was quite won over to the system, for formation bells invariably found him still with one foot in the shower and a shirt still to be rigged.


The Class of 1947 was graduated in June 1946 due to World War II. The entirety of 2nd class (junior) year was removed from the curriculum.
