Pershing Barracks

Lee Hall

Central Area with Cadets marching to meal.

Grant Hall as it was in 1962 with Barracks above. Jim Kays and I lived in the corner room on 2d floor Cow year. Know as South Area at the time, it was the Barracks of 1st Regiment Runts (I,K,L, and M Companies) – but with the Class of 61 the assignment of Cadets by height was in the process of change. Still South Area was not a place to enter unless you stood less than 5′ 7″. There was a Runt Complex, a Napoleonic Complex — a general distrust of tall people. Cadets would come to our room, climb out on the roof of Grant Hall and sit in the sun — that is until a Tac found out.

The Young Ladies who came to visit Cadets would sit on the rail outside of Grant Hall awaiting us.
