Frank died in July 2007 from liver disease.
At Princeton, he majored in the Woodrow Wilson School, concentrating in Latin America, and participated in Orange Key, the Spanish Club, The Daily Princetonian, and the International Relations Club.
Probably the class' most educated man, Frank received a master's from Harvard, a degree in international law from Yale, and a Ph.D. in history from Cambridge University. He practiced law in America and elsewhere for Donovan Leisure before moving to England.
Frank married Julia Hedgecoe. His career in England was prodigious. He taught commercial law at Warwick University, represented NatWest Bank, taught courses about U.S. commercial law to foreign lawyers moving to the United States, and maintained residences in Cambridge and Spain.
He also wrote The First Latin America Debt Crisis, which was published by Yale University Press. One of his best college friends recollected his motto: "Life is work hard, have fun, and party hard.''
