Charles A. Webster ’49

Published in Mar. 22, 2006, issue

Chuck died Jan. 30, 2005, while residing near Washington, D.C. He was 81.

A graduate of Clinton (Ind.) High School, Chuck came to Princeton as a Marine V-12 student after combat service in the Pacific during World War II. At Princeton he majored in economics and graduated in 1948 with honors. He was a member of Tiger Inn.

After graduation, Chuck worked in advertising for L. Strauss and Co. until he was recalled to active duty as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps during the Korean War. He was badly wounded in Korea. After long months in Bethesda Naval Hospital, he returned to active duty and remained in the Marines until retirement as a lieutenant colonel.

There is no information about Chuck's family except that he may have had two children. His honorable service in World War II, Korea, and Vietnam fulfilled the ideal of Princeton in the nation's service. His class respectfully salutes him.

My Dad retired as a colonel not a lieutenant colonel. He was married to JoAnn Coleman (Webster) and had two children, Susan Witcomb and Charles Coleman. After retirement he had a successful career as a restate agent. He passed away from lung cancer.
