Saturday January 6, 1906 on the death of Nelson Haas, which states that Wallace Bertholf was one of the students Nelson Haas had tutored to pass the entrance examination to Annapolis. The article states that
Wallace Bertholf was an Ensign in the Navy at the time
January 6, 1906. Because I do not know how long he was in service, I am putting Wallace Bertholf under “Between Major Conflicts” until more information is found to state otherwise.
