Published in the Jan.18, 2012, issue

“Cammy” Slack died of respiratory failure July 1, 2011, in Towson, Md.

He graduated from the Gilman School in his hometown of Baltimore. At Princeton, he played freshman football and baseball, then rugby for the next three years. He belonged to Ivy Club and earned his degree in English.

After Princeton, Cammy joined the Marine Corps, rising to captain as an artillery spe cialist. He remained in the Reserve until 1958.

He began his banking career with the Bank of New York in New York City. In 1957 he moved to Baltimore to join Maryland Trust Co., where he gained prominence as an expert on commercial lending practices, contributing articles to professional journals and lecturing at executive programs. He retired in 1988.

Following retirement, he volunteered with the International Executive Service Corps. He was the first Western banker to assist in bank reform in the Russian city of Nizhny Novgorod (formerly known as Gorky).

Cammy actively supported Baltimore’s cultural and educational institutions. He spent much of his retirement at a second home on Gibson Island, Md.

His wife, Erika, and son, Wyatt Cameron Jr., predeceased him. Our condolences go to his son Randy; daughter Katharine; and his nephews and nieces.
