b Robert Lovett died after the publication of Vol. IX (1950), the most recent volume of the Supplements to Cullum's Register available to me, which may also be the most recent volume in the public domain. For the remainder of his career, see the memorial article and biographical sketch at West Point Association of Graduates, which also expands on the very condensed summary we read here in the Register.
