Barry S. Vroman Jr. ’50

Published in the Mar.4, 2009, issue

Barry, a lifelong resident of Maine, died there Aug. 24, 2008.

Barry came to Princeton from Andover. At Princeton, he majored in history, swam as a freshman, worked at WPRU for three years, was on the junior prom committee, and belonged to Quadrangle. He also found time for a clapper heist.

After graduation he returned home to join Maine National Bank in Portland. Just four years later he married Anne Schroeder, the daughter of a Yale professor. By 1970 he had risen to the bank presidency. In 1984, after 34 years with the bank, he took early retirement.

During retirement, Barry and Anne cruised the Maine coast for several summers. They spent winters in Sarasota, Fla., where they took up golf. After 10 years they decided to sell their home there and resume year-round residency in Maine. Health problems slowed Barry down in the later years of his retirement.

He and Anne had three children, but sadly lost a son to an auto accident in 1978. Anne died in 2005. We extend our sympathy to Barry’s son John and daughter Katharine.
