United States Naval Academy - Lucky Bag Yearbook (Annapolis, MD) - Class of 1941
"From the great Middle West came this soldier boy fresh from an Army prep school. His military experience and versatile manner of thinking marked him a success from the beginning. Fritz has a knack for taking things easy. His cherished relaxation is a good book, a good cigar, and a soft bunk. He excels in tennis and reputedly once won a " Joe " pot in a local tournament. A keen sense of judgment and a deep interest in professional subjects have aided him to help his classmates figure FRANCIS RAYMOND MOLITOR out " how the cam works " or " what do you think I ought to do about it? " An excellent story teller, he holds his audience spellbound when he narrates in his quiet, easy voice. His social life at the Academy has not in the least been neglected. He has been seen at many hops and his ability to keep his 4.0 drag ' s attention has become the envy of his shipmates. Fritz will ease through life and attain his ambitions through his dominating quahties of sound judgment and common sense.
