From the 1965 Lucky Bag:

WILLIAM MICHAEL GRAMMAR

Dick, alias "Ralph Waldo", came to the Academy as a Navy junior with a list of sea stories that grows longer every year. Having a special knack for unsetting upperclassmen, Dick had a very eventful Plebe year. He waged war with the academic departments for his entire stay. Somehow he always managed to come out on top, although the issue was often in doubt till the bitter end. However, when it came to maintaining a military bearing and remaining physically fit, Dick had few equals — as his airborne wings and boxing awards can testify. He was named the champion Plebe builder in the company as early as youngster year and was never seriously challenged for the title. A decided and forceful individual, Dick will be an asset to any outfit he is assigned to.
