There are biographies of nine others who died in the decade after graduation-six of illness, three in accidents. Further tributes to those who served in the war include a compilation of graduates organized by military service unit and rank; full-color plates of honor ribbons awarded, and to whom (Distinguished Service Cross, U.S., eight recipients; Legion of Honor, France, two; Croix de Guerre, France, twelve; Order of the Redeemer, Greece, one; Order of the Crown, one, and Croce di Guerra, one, Italy; Order of Danilo, Montenegro); a compilation of individual war records of all graduates; and a list of military citations to the class members. Additionally, there are essays on various occupations (the ministry, farming, publishing, etc.) written by graduates employed in them; an analysis of the average income of class members; a list showing the distribution of occupations; and a list showing the geographical distribution of the class's graduates, with names organized by state and there under city.
