Paul C. Walter Jr. ’49

Published in the Nov.19, 2008, issue

Paul died June 20, 2008, of cardiac arrest. He was 80.

He prepared for Princeton at Mercersburg Academy. At Princeton he majored in biology. Paul was on the crew and was a member of Cloister Inn.

After Princeton, Paul attended Johns Hopkins Medical School and the University of Pennsylvania, where he explored philosophy and history. During this time he also served in the National Security Agency as an agent in West Germany. He then worked at the Phipps Institute of Preventive Medicine, the College of Physicians of Philadelphia, Franklin Institute Research Center, Sloan-Kettering, the National Cancer Center, and the Agency for Health Care Policy and Research. His main thrust was always the cutting edge of medical research.

Unfortunately, Paul had a congestive collapse in 1999 that severely affected his eyesight and left him almost blind. He remained in a nursing home in Washington, D.C., until his death.

In 1954 Paul married Elli Rambow, an East German refugee, and from 1960 on they called Princeton home. They had one son, Dr. Hugo G. Walter ’81. The class extends its sincere sympathy to Elli and Hugo on their loss.
