Edgar Sanders Lewis ’43

Published in Oct. 19, 2005, issue

Sandy died of lymphoma July 24, 2005. He was 83.

A Columbus, Ohio, native, he came to Pittsburgh at 14, when his father was named president of Jones & Laughlin Steel Co. Sandy prepped for Princeton at Shady Side Academy and Taft School in Connecticut.

After a short stint in the Army, Sandy was recruited by the Office of Strategic Services, Wild Bill Donovan's precursor to the CIA.

Following graduation from Harvard Business School after World War II, Sandy gravitated to the West Coast and a job with Crocker's Bank, later returning to Pittsburgh and Mellon Bank. He also oversaw management of several farm properties in Minnesota owned by his mother's family.

Sandy is survived by Elsie, his wife of 43 years, six children, and 14 grandchildren.

To the entire family, we extend our deepest condolences.
