Wolf Robe. Cheyenne Tribe 1898.
General Benjamin O. Davis, Jr. USAF
“After attending the University of Chicago, he entered the United States Military Academy at West Point, New York in 1932. He was sponsored by Representative Oscar De Priest (R-IL) of Chicago, at the time, the only black member of Congress. During the entire four years of his Academy term, Davis was shunned by his classmates, few of whom spoke to him outside the line of duty. He never had a roommate. He ate by himself. His classmates hoped that this would drive him out of the Academy. The “silent treatment” had the opposite effect. It made Davis more determined to graduate.”
