Student in front of Oak Hall, fall 1922.

My grandfather, James A. Rush, was a University of Maine student. In his freshman year, 1922–23, he kept a memory book of pictures he took of his classmates. This picture is of the residents of Oak Hall in the fall 1922. Jim Rush is standing in the first row, the third from the left. Rush went on to become a mill manager for Consolidated Water Power and Paper Company in Wisconsin. One of his inspirations was the opaque bread wrapper so WWII troops could receive fresh bread.

ROTC George Robert Acheson, Lawrence King Casey and ROTC Joseph Charles Simon. Simon graduated from the University of Maine in 1927 with a degree in forestry. Casey studied chemical engineering and went on to be an accountant for a rubber factory in Boston. Acheson became a major general in the U.S. Air Force. More information about his military career is online.
