I was not aware. Not that J.D. in actuality is a mistranscription of the cursive I.P., with, if you look at the documents, does look like a J.D.
I.P. Snedicor, is also confused with J.P. Snedicor in the Provost Marshal reports file folder headings. As if Snedicor didn't have enough spellings, here we have to deal with multiple iterations of the guy's initials.
Thanks for the head's up on Ben Loan. post-war Radical vs post-war Conservative. Who coulda saw that one coming?
