Garth Graham died March 24, 2011.

Garth entered Princeton from York Community High School in Illinois and joined Key and Seal. In 1944 he received his bachelor’s degree in chemistry Phi Beta Kappa, and then received a medical degree from Harvard in 1947 after having been in V-12 in the Navy Medical Corps. He served during the Korean War in both Korea and Japan, and eventually spent 20 years on the medical staff of UCLA Medical Center and St. John’s Hospital.

Garth married Jean Williams, and they later divorced. He then married Erika Wunsch in 1972. They moved to Philadelphia, where he was employed by Smith, Kline & French. Garth retired as vice president of product safety and continued to work as a consultant in the pharmaceutical industry.

Garth, who survived several serious illnesses, was deeply devoted to his Episcopal Church parish, where he served on the vestry.

In addition to Erika, he is survived by his son, Garth; daughters Katherine and Pamela; and six grandchildren. Sadly, his youngest daughter, Cynthia, died Dec. 9, 2011. The class expresses its sympathy to the family.
