Malcolm John Cochrane ’42

Published in Oct. 9, 2002, issue

Mac died at home, in Port Townsend, Wash., on Jan. 5, 2002. He retired in 1980, after many years of working for Los Angeles County, and moved his family to Port Townsend.

Mac joined the class from Choate but dropped out in 1942 to join the armed forces, serving with the Army in Europe until 1946. He finished his education at Georgetown after the war. He worked and lived in NYC until the early 1960s, after which he moved to LA. He loved the theater, and after retiring was actively involved with the Key City Players. He also provided calligraphy for the local school district for awards and certificates.

It was said that he will be remembered as a fiercely intelligent family man with a particular love of knowledge and language. He had a store of memorized poetry and songs that he could call forth as appropriate.

He is survived by his wife, Jane; his children, Andy and Julia; and by one granddaughter, to all of whom the class offers its most sincere condolences.
