Ronald Dale Schmidt ’53

Published in the June11, 2008, issue

Ron, who was born in Chicago and graduated from Wayland Academy in Wisconsin, died from complications of diabetes March 11, 2008, at his home in Novato, Calif.

He was at Princeton for two years and roomed freshman year with Bill Ellis, Ned Jannotta, and Jim Otis, who remembers Ron as “very outgoing.” Sophomore year his roommates were Rory O’Neil, Rod Portuondo, and Peter Ross.

Ron entered Northwestern University and received his diploma from its Kellogg School of Business. He served as a Marine Corps officer during the Korean conflict. He began his professional career as a stockbroker with A.G. Becker & Co. in Chicago and was transferred to the firm’s San Francisco office in 1967. He left Becker shortly afterward to go into business for himself and did not keep in contact with the class.

We have no further information, but extend our sympathy to Ron’s family and friends.
