Said his 1908 TAPS Senior blurb: " 'George' is a candy kid. He is very fond of athletics, and after that his next most enjoyable pastime is 'heart-smashing,' at which he is adept. In barracks his favorite pastime is reminiscing. Notwithstanding all published orders, George can invariably be found at the store during a vacant hour. Many thanks are due George for his efficient, skilful, and enthusiastic work as coach of the Class Tennis." (Page 48.)
