His Senior biography from TAPS 1916: "This is the noblest Roman of them all." To know DAG, is to love him; hence his host of friends, both boys and girls. To quench his intense thirst for knowledge, he came here, in January, 1913, and cast his lot with the "Lightning Chasers." DAG'S hobby is inventions; and some day he may startle the electricity world - by lighting Central.
