Julian Arthur Gregory Jr. ’35

Published in Apr. 6, 2005, issue

A former class president who personified all that's special about the Class of 1935, Greg died Aug. 16, 2002.

He was the son of J.A. Gregory 1897, and almost from the day he arrived on campus Greg was a presence. He majored in politics and his extracurricular interests were endless. Cane Spree, wrestling, football, University Orchestra, Triangle Club, prom committee, and Cap and Gown Club were only some of the activities that caught his eye, but all were buoyed by his enthusiastic, upbeat personality.

After graduation Greg earned a law degree at the University of Michigan and spent four years as an Army officer, serving in the South Pacific and Korea. Thereafter he practiced law in New York City and in his ancestral hometown of Wilton, Conn.

Princeton and '35 were never far from Greg's heart and mind. He served as class Annual Giving chairman from 1947-50 and as class vice president from 1950-55. Even after his term as president ended in 1960, he came back at every chance to greet classmates and lead cheers for Old Nassau.

Wilton, and Fairfield County, Conn., profited in countless ways from Greg's interest and care. Classmates say '35 would never have been the same without Greg's spirit and vitality.

His wife, Margaret Porter Gregory, and their son, Julian Arthur Gregory, survive.
