Robert E. Baker

Bob Baker was from Douglas, Georgia.  At Navy, he was known for a good game of tennis, a deft hand at bridge, and membership in the Army of the Confederacy.  His claim to be a personal friend of General Lee was, however, a matter of some skepticism. 


He entered Navy Line upon graduation, and retired as a lieutenant commander.  In civilian life, he pursued a career in law enforcement.  He passed away on 29 January 1986 in Fort Lauderdale, Florida.
