Commander Roy M. Mundorff, USNR, executive officer of the Harvard Naval Training Station since March 31, 1945, will return to civilian life Thursday, relieved by Commander Mann Hamm, USN.
Commissioned with the Annapolis class of 1931, Hamm has been commanding officer of the Graduate School of Applied Communications for the past eight months.
A member of the Naval Reserve for 15 years, Mundorff will be separated in Boston Thursday. He arrived at the University in December, 1943 as officer in charge of the Naval Radar School and was appointed executive officer of the NTS in March 1945.
Will Return To Georgia Tech
Mundorff plans to return immediately to Georgia Tech as assistant director of Athletics, administrating all varsity except football. Before being called to active duty in 1940, he was Tech's head baseball and basketball coach, and assistant football mentor.
Traveling through the sixth Naval district on his first service assignment, Mundorff was next attached to the In Shore Patrol Base, Mayport. Florida. After working with the NROTC Unit at Georgia Tech, he organized the original V-12 Unit at that University.
Worked With V-12
He installed Navy and Marine V-12 Units at Emory University, Atlanta, Georgia and Dental V-12 Units at Emory and Southern Dental College.
A graduate of Pennsylvania College in 1920, Mundorff played varsity football and basketball.
"I regret leaving Harvard because of the many friendships and pleasant times I have been afforded during my stay here," he said yesterday.
