After spending two years at Princeton, Pratt graduated with honors from Columbia and then, as he describes it in our 50th-reunion book, “went on to see the world in the eyes of an industrialist.” His travels took him to graduate school in Geneva, to London (where he married Jenny), to Tokyo, Hong Kong, and then back to the UK.
Pratt’s varied and fascinating business career included electronics, manufacturing, and the directorships of two insurance companies and an investment trust. Jenny Thompson has had a successful painting career with regular exhibitions in London and elsewhere. Pratt’s joy of life will be sorely missed.
To Jenny, daughters Amanda and Trendell, Pratt’s grandchildren, and his colleagues and friends, the class extends deepest sympathy.
