Andrew A. Haldane
Captain, United States Marine Corps
Bowdoin College:

One of these who did not return was Andrew A. Haldane, who had been killed in action on Peleliu Island in 1944. In his memory, men who had known him and who respected him as a leader, a friend, and a very decent human being came together and donated the Haldane Cup, which is awarded annually to the graduating senior who has shown the most outstanding leadership character. It was a fitting tribute.


I will be visiting Washington next month and would like information locating the memorial site within Arlington for Captain Andrew A. Haldane, USMC, killed in 1944 at the battle of Peleliu. I have been researching World War II history and would like to visit his gravesite, but he is not listed in the Marine Corps listing on this website. Thank you. PAB
