Recent pick up. Listed as 1930's but not 100% sure yet. It is named to W. S. Leefer. Uniform is in excellent condition. Also came with two belts and the shirt, Made by Terry & Juden out of New Orleans. Buttons are all back marked Superior Quality.

Pretty nice, have not seen one. If I am not mistaken, Troy Houston Middleton was working for LSU until he resigned to rejoin the Army after Pearl Harbor was attacked.

You are correct. He was the commandant of cadets until he was called back into service in WWII. At that time all able bodied men were in the ROTC. LSU was called the Old War Skule. Then after the war he became president of LSU. The library is named in his honor.

I could only find one Leefer in the WWII enlistment records, and none in the reserve forces. There are also very few entries in Find A Grave for anyone with the name Leefer.

 

Good luck on your continued search.
