Looking for info on Rufus Rex, mascot of USS Wyoming [see plaque]


Recommended Posts

I found this wonderful plaque for Rufus Rex and I cannot find a thing about him except for one tidbit from the Baltimore Sun, "The grave marker for Rufus Rex, mascot of the battleship USS Wyoming is seen in Oakleigh Pet Cemetery." Sadly the newspaper's page doesn't work so I don't know if there's more info to be attained. I contacted the newspaper via facebook, with a pic of the plaque, and hopefully they can pull up what Google is seeing.
