William Henry Duvall, Jr. was born on December 26, 1895 in Prince George's County, Maryland. He entered the Maryland Agricultural College as a student in 1916, but was inducted into the U. S. Army in 1918 and did not graduate with the rest of his class in 1919. This collection includes a hand-written laboratory notebook for a mechanical engineering class dated 1917, and a textbook entitled Introductory Course in Mechanical Drawing, by J. C. Tracy, C.E., published in 1898. The notebook appears to be Duvall's but also lists his lab partners "Brooks" [A. J. Brooks] and "Hand" [Edward W. Hand], who were in his class. The textbook has "W. H. Duvall" and the acronym "M.A.C.", for the Maryland Agricultural College, on the cover.
