LTC Thomas N. Courvoisie, USA

Class of 1938

\The Boo\ (his universally known nickname) was a Citadel icon for five decades. He was the inspiration for two books by author/alumnus Pat Conroy, and one motion picture, The Lords Of Discipline, in which his character played a starring role. His Citadel education was interrupted by WW11 and he actually graduated in 1952 as a veteran student. Assistant Commandant in charge of discipline,1961-1968,he called cadets \Lambs\ and \Bums\, meted out punishment and favors and was never seen without a foul smelling cigar.
