John Christian Peterson

South Bristol, Maine

John is an easy-going fellow with more nicknames than you can count. He arrived at U.S.N.A. from a small New England town with a population which barely equaled the number in his incoming class. Pete was quick to win friends with a ready smile. Having been brought up along the Maine coast, his primary interests lay in the water as could be witnessed by the amount of time he spent on or in it. He was quite active in the photo club, and with the pursuit of the other necessities of life -- wine, women and song, he had much to do during his spare moments. It is certain that John's future will be closely linked with the sea and that he will be happy in anything he does.
