Joseph Thistle Lambie ’34

Published in Sept. 14, 2005, issue

Joe, chairman of the Daily Princetonian in our day, who went on to become an investment counselor, teacher, therapist, and volunteer, died April 22, 2005.

After earning his Ph.D. in history from Harvard, Joe taught at Andover, where he had prepared for Princeton, and at Wellesley College before becoming an investment counselor with Loomis-Sayles. He worked there for 20 years before retiring in 1975 as vice president in the Boston office.

In 1954, after "six pleasant and productive years," as he wrote, at Wellesley, the New York University Press published his book From Mine to Market: the History of Coal Transportation on the Norfolk & Western Railway.

Joe was a rare Princetonian in that he never missed a year of Annual Giving since its start in 1940. In recent years he had suffered from macular degeneration, "a bloody nuisance," as he wrote a classmate, "but I manage to get along with assistance."

Surviving are two daughters, Marcia Farrell and Sara Moore; a son, Andrew; and three grandchildren.
