Lieutenant-Colonel James A. Shannon, member of General Pershing's staff, and formerly military commander of the R. O. T. C. at the University, is mentioned in the casuality lists of last Monday as killed in action. During the spring and summer of 1917 Colonel Shannon, then major, was in charge of the military program here, and was a member of the Faculty. It will be remembered that when he was transferred to an overseas division, the University regiment marched in a body to his home on Mercer Circle and presented him with several gifts, among which were a saddle and bridle. His immediate family includes his wife, three children, and his father-in-law, Brigadier-General Eli D. Hoyle. Colonel Shannon was a graduate of West Point, 1902, and was 39 years old.
