IRA I IAIMON Historian

Tampa, Florida

This concentrated essence of ubiquitousness was born in
Baltimore, Md„ June II. 1893. Some say William is Irish,
but as a matter of fact, his remote ancestors made a clean
get-away out of Egypt with certain jewelry several millenniums
ano. with ireful old Pharaoh in hot pursuit. William came
from Hillsboro High School to Washington and Lee in 1909
and straightway began to distinguish himself, seizing a chemistry
scholarship the same year. He is hard to down, is William
I I. when he thinks he is right, and William 1 1. is generally
and usually of that opinion. Note his achievements: Assistant
Marshal at "Wash" Celebration and at final celebration, 1911;
Historian Florida Club; Alternate on debating team, 10-11;
gymnasium medal for mats, 11-12; winner of debater's medal
at "Wash" Centennial Celebration. 1912. He expects to give
pills to sick people.

Alexandria. Vircinia


This star track performer was born at Concessit
lion. La., August 3rd, 1892, and has been on the run eve.
s'nce, and winning for the most part. I le attended Episcopal
High School before he decided to come to Washington
and Lee in 1908. George allowed the II A X's to make a
goat out of him, but he is all to the good. In addition to
being a good student he has done the following stunts: Track
•team. '09, '10, 'II, '12; Secretary G A. A.. 'I0-'II; Secre-
tary and Treasurer Combined Musical Clubs, 'I1-M2; Manage;
Mandolin and Guitar Club. '1I-'I2; Captain Track Team,
I'll I. He has chosen for his career that of a capitalist. Be-
ino a rood runner, handicaps will not disturb him.

Asheville, North Carolina

This perpendicular giant was born at Asheville. May 23.
1890. It is said that when he was little he was not so tall as
he is now. Ed came here from Bingham School, Mebane.
N. C, in 1908. He has done various things since he has
been at Washington and Lee. He made his class Football
Team in '09. '10. and 'II. Alkie says he is going into the
real estate business. He is a good fellow, and will give his
customers a square deal. He won't be mean enough to sell
land covered bv the Atlantic.


Bakersville, North Carolina

This is the only original "Bill" Bailey oul of captivity.

The others air cheap imitations. Bill was born at the afore-
said town Tel. ma, v >\ 1889. Before coming to Washington
and I ,ee he attended Bingham School. Asheville, N. C. and
Baker-Himel School, Knoxville, Tenn. We welcomed him
here in 1908. "Bill" is not guilty of pilfering any scholar-
ships, but he gels there just the same. Look at that massive
brow! What potentialities for grand achievements! Daniel
Webster, sit down well in the rear! "Bill" was Secretary -

[-reasurei North Carolina Club, 'lO-'ll, and High Mogul of
the same. Il-'li. lie expects to study law at Harvard and
plead it he knows not where.



Behold what makes Ronceverle famous! This voung man
was born at Dayton, \'a.. March 19. 1889. He graduated
from the Ronceveilc High School in 1908 and hurried on lo
Washington and Lee. Robert is a genial little fellow but a
slm I disciplinarian owing lo his being associated with the
library as Assistant Librarian since 1909. Washington and
Lee has never known a more zealous worker In ihe Literary
Society. He was Nice-President of the Graham-Lee. '10;
Vice Presidenl bum Societies, "lO-'ll. He is also a member
of the West Virginia Club. Robert likes lo go oul on ihe hills
and admire naluie. but he shuts his eyes when he sees a wire
fence under reilain conditions. He expects lo be a sure-enough

This chap lent lustre to our National Capital bv putting in

Washington and Lee in '08 after having attended Central
High School and George Washington University. Johnnie
has made an intensive study of Greek since he has been in

Woodstock, Virginia

Carl was born somewhere in Shenandoah Counly. Virginia,
some time in the 19th century. He completed a business course
at Massanutten Academy before coming to Washington and

and has been one of the faithful-to-the-end. He was President
Washington Society, '10; Centennial debater tor February cele-
bration, 12; member Albert Sidney Boat Club; on Attendance
Committee of Y. M. C. A. Carl is taking Junior Law this

Undoubtedly he will be too, for the word "flunk" is not in
his vocabulary.


Dillwvn. Virginia

This serenely smiling voung gentleman was born at the place
above indicated about February 24. 1888. He honored Fork
Union Military Academy and the University of Virginia Summer
School by his presence before deciding to cast his lot with
us in '09. Since then he has pursued the even tenor of his way.
smiling, but saying little. Edgar intends to go into business;
and we predict that he will succeed because he attends strictly
to his own business.

He was born in Lynchburg, September 3. 1886, and came

An unclassified genius. Author of the Passion Cry; skilled
in mimicry, giving life-like imitations of all manner of noises
from the bray of a jackass to the lamentations of an elderly
maiden lady; has the names of famous actresses on his tongue
and neuritis in his heel; authority on the drama; musician
of no mean repute. Willie came among us in the fall of '08.
What he is going to do after June the fifteenth the Lord only
knows— Billy doesn't.

Fort Worth, Texas

Another pretty name for a prelly good fellow. The veiy
pose of this dignified chap bespeaks slaggering erudition in
chunks and dabs. Elmo was born in far off California, April
12, 1890. He attended Fort Worth High School and Avslin
College at Sherman, Texas. And for that town he has con-
ceived a violent and perennial affection. Best of all is his
high opinion of his father whom he verily believes to be the
greatest man in the world. May the old man see this! Flmo
cast his lot with us in '09. He intends to be a physician.

Here is another of those human bipeds analogous to gymno-

pleasure of it, and for the glory of the University. He was born
at Savannah, February 24, 1892, attended Savannah High
School and Somerville Prep, and then made a bee-line for
old Washington and Lee. After he gels his B. A. he is
going to Johns Hopkins lo study medicine. He has made a
good record here, both in and out of the classroom. He
plays some species of stringed instrumenl, we believe, in the
Mandolin and Guilar Club. He also talks Dutch al the

This wise littler man was born way down yonder in New
Orleans, Oclober 30. 1887. When the Staunton High School
had finished with him he came lo Washington and Lee. which
was in 1906. As has been indicated, there is more under his
hat than modified epidermis. Scholarships just naturally
come his way. He has appropriated two. the English and
Vincent L. Bradford Scholarships. He has also been Cox
swam of the Harry Lee Crew. Although serving a sentence
of two years in the "Co-op." he finds time lo edit the Ring
Turn Phi and lo handle the funds of the Senior Class.
