Biographical / Historical

Henry J. Lisek appears in the 1940 Purdue Debris as a student. He is then listed in the Lake County, Indiana, World War II Army enlistment records as having enlisted on May 27, 1941. The examination booklet found in the collection is dated 1948. So, it is possible he returned to Purdue, as a student, upon his return from the war.
