From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook, as a Freshman: 
KENNETH FISHER (Born in Michigan)
Art, art, and more art. Put this together and you have – – – Kenneth Fisher. Although he says that he can’t take time out for books, his favorite of those he has read is “Mutiny on the Bounty”, and his favorite song is “God Bless America”. Science seems to be the most favored of his subjects at school and he professes a likeness to the color pink. And here’s a secrret – – when he isn’t drawing, he’s studying to be a real skipper, and can he make those boats go! Kenneth manages to keep pretty busy what with his likeness for food, art and a sailboat.
