Description William M. Calvert (CC class of 1944) attended Colorado College from 1940 to 1943, and received his Bachelor of Arts in political science in absentia in 1944. When the Navy V-12 unit arrived on the Colorado College campus in 1942, Calvert was automatically a member, for he had enlisted in the Naval Reserves shortly after the bombing of Pearl Harbor. He served in the Pacific Theater in World War II. Calvert entered the University of Colorado School of Law in 1946, and received his Juris Doctorate in 1948. In 1961, he was elected District Judge, and he held that post until his retirement in 1981. Judge Calvert was a member of the Saturday Knights, the prestigious Colorado Springs hiking club.
