Dodo


This collection of Dodo magazines was amassed from the USAFA McDermott Library, Clark Special Collections, in addition to personal collections of classmates and alumni. Some issues have missing pages, and some undoubtedly have pages wrongly attributed to a particular issue. Contributions, corrections, and clarifications always appreciated.

 

As I recall, the Dodo started in Second Squadron, two rooms across from each other, residents Dick Lee, John Reeves, Larry Fortner, and me. I think Reeves was the actual instigator. Both Lee and Reeves are gone and as far as I know did not leave much in the way of old collections. 

– Lt Gen Bradley Hosmer, Class of 1959 (April 2020)

 

I seriously doubt that they [The Dodos] were read by the Cadets. Our schedule was so full that we did not have time to read about what we were doing. We had plenty to keep us occupied with the courses we were taking and they were the priority for our reading and studying time. We had a solid “lights out” at 2200. Reveille was likely at 0600. Classes were Monday thru Friday with a half day on Saturday and then a Parade after lunch.
