Dick died of cancer Jan. 28, 2008, at his home in Short Hills, N.J.

Born in Elizabeth, N.J., Dick came to Princeton from the Pingry School. He majored in art and archaeology and was a member of Key and Seal Club, the Orange Key Guide Service, and the French Club.

After graduation, Dick served in the Army and earned an M.B.A. at Harvard Business School. His career encompassed a number of advertising and marketing positions in the New York metropolitan area with Compton and Dancer-Fitzgerald-Sample, American Home Products, CPC International, and Carter-Wallace Inc., from which he retired in 1997 after 22 years of service.

An especially devoted member of our class, Dick served as class president from 2000 to 2005. He was also governor-general of the National Society of Colonial Wars, governor of the New York Society of Colonial Wars, and a member of several other historical organizations. Dick chaired the Short Hills Historic Preservation Commission for many years and was an avid collector of Greek and Roman coins.

Kathy, Dick’s wife of 40 years, and their daughter, Alexandra, survive Dick. The class sends heartfelt condolences to the family.
