Excerpts from "Reveille", University of Maryland Yearbook, 1902:

Alias "S.P." or "Sporter" —

S. Porter seemed a modest boy when first he came to College, and cared not for woman's looks, and was only bent on knowledge. But though he studies hard and well his "Zoo" and Trigonometry. His thoughts have lately turned, full tilt, to the study of Astronomy.

Born at Barnesville, Montgomery County, Maryland, on the sixteenth day of April, 1881. Attended the high schools of Washington until the fall of 1899 when he entered the
Sophomore class at this College.

A model of military propriety and a worthy successor of the preceding captains of Company "A."

Does not care for society, but appears at the "hops" in the most business-like manner. Has been known to leave the hall in the height of the dance to study German, which is his first love among the languages.

Has never been known to commit any criminal act other than the procuring of a pony under false pretenses. Some suspicion aroused by his holding such an important position upon the Strategy Board.
