Education: Marcus III

The commencement program of Kentucky Military Institute at Lyndon, Ky., near Louisville, carried the name of Mark A. Hanna III. His high marks, averaging 93%, had won him the highest honors of the 1927 class; he was to make the valedictory address. When, later, he rose to speak, an 18-year-old oval-cheeked boy, he reminded auditors of an able man whom he had never seen—the late U. S. Senator Marcus Alonzo Hanna, his great grandfather, who died in 1904.

Next fall Mark A. Hanna III will matriculate at Brown University, Providence.
