Paul E. Ingwalson AMP ’44, May 10, 2015, in Crosby, North Dakota. Paul attended the University of Minnesota for a year and a half before becoming a cadet in the premeteorology program during World War II. After a year at Reed, where he studied mathematics in great detail, he went to Harvard to study electronic engineering. Following his military service, he took up flying, logging 12,000 hours in his 55 years as a private pilot, and flying in (nearly) all of the air force first-line fighters. In 2011, he was invited to participate in the North Dakota Roughrider Honor Flight to Washington, D.C.—the last flight for North Dakota World War II veterans to visit the World War II memorial. With his father, he owned real estate in three states, and he was a Ford and Mercury dealer for 39 years. Survivors include his wife, Ardel Johnson Ingwalson; a stepson; and two stepdaughters.
