    Junius' partner in twine is Alfred Greenough (Harvard '08) Both Morgan & Greenough earned commissions and served in Europe during the war. Harvards Military Record in the War is a good resource for these type pics.

    That is a good resource, especially since the publicity on this project tended to stress the blue-blooded nature of the civilian rookies. Here is Greenough's entry: "Greenough Alfred AB 08, Ensign US Naval Reserve Force when United States entered the war. called to active duty April 27 1917 and assigned to USS Harvard served as junior watch and division officer sailed for overseas service June 8 vessel on escort duty in English Channel transferred to staff of Admiral Wilson Brest France June 10 1918 served as director of mails for US Naval Forces in France promoted lieutenant junior grade September 16 returned to United States January 5 1919 released from active duty January 15 1919 ."
