From the Mar-Ken 1941 Yearbook, as a Sophomore:
Francis Weeks — Los Angeles
Frances Weeks would like to be an electrical engineer,
He is now a model craftsman and quite good at planes we hear,
For sport he loves to bowl, play tennis any day,
He also likes big steaks and says his hobby is to “play”.

From the Mar-Ken 1942 Yearbook, as a Junior:
“Frank” Weeks thinks he would like to be a mechanical engineer but for the present he’ll content himself with listening to boogie-woogie. He was born in Los Angeles, Calif. on August 26th and says Sunday drivers are the only things that rile him.

From 1943 Mar-Ken Yearbook; Senior Crossword Puzzle:
He’s a hard working executive and is over six feet tall, with very broad shoulders.
