Richard Kurtze “Dick”

Richard Kurtze received the Tenth Grade Award for All-Around Achievement in 1940.

From the Mar-Ken 1940 Yearbook:
RICHARD KURTZE – This bewhiskered bundle was delivered on August 26th in Indianapolis, Indiana.  His hobby, or should I say hobbies, are Photography, eating and women. His favorite pastime is cruising around town with Vail and “pretty boy” Cook.  He is particularly fond of Blondes and Red Heads.  He likes baked ham and beans. What a combination!  Dislikes cracks about Republic, that is those cracks that he didn’t make.  Favorite song, “Emperor Waltz”; book, “Kim”; subject, Creative Writing, color, green.  He says that he doesn’t have an ambition unless quote, “Maybe I’ll be a SENIOR, maybe”.
