You need to give far more information than this.  Who is Luther Ray Stevens?  If he was a Philippine Scout, to what unit was he assigned?  If you don't know the exact unit, was it cavalry, infantry, artillery, one of the support services?  As he appears from his name not to have been a Filipino, he almost certainly was an officer.  What was his rank?  You have not begun to give enough information.  Editor

Brigadier General Stevens was a reserve officer serving long term with the Philippine Constabulary. He served as Superintendant of the PMA, (then the PCA) and was the senior serving American in the constabulary when recalled to AD and appointed BG PA as the CG of the 91st PA Division which he commanded through the fall of Bataan. Following PA repatriation he was retired as a BG, AUS. COL JM Fitzgerald, USA Retired

What years was General Stevens associated with PMA?
What influence did he have on the training at the school? Which classes did he influence? Were any particular PMA graduates with him on Bataan?  (Class of 1940?)

Thanks, Sue

The following was contributed by Col. Fitzgerald.  Editor

The PCA was designated such in 1926 from the PC Officers School and the curiculum extended to three years under then LT Colonel Stevens who served as superintendant until 1929. I do not believe that any class of 40 served in the 91st Division which consisted of only two regiments deployed from the Visayas. A career PS officer Colonel James Carter commanded the second regiment. The unit had little or no training when deployed and was woefully under equipped. Nevertheless it performed admirably in Wainwright's I Corps. As a point of interest General Stevens graduated from Mississippi A&M(now Mississippi State) in 1910 one year after his friend BG Brougher who commanded the 11th PA Division.
