Peter Beach Warren ’45

Published in Sept. 11, 2002, issue

Peter Warren died Nov. 3, 2001, at his home in Roosevelt, N.J. Peter attended Lawrenceville but joined the class at Princeton after he had completed several years of wartime service as an ambulance driver for the American Field Service. He received his degree in the School of Public and International Affairs magna cum laude in 1948. Peter devoted himself to world economic problems both in the private sector and for the government. His interests took him around the world, spending time in Italy, Guinea, and Saudi Arabia. Taking up residence in Roosevelt in 1967, he devoted himself to local civic affairs as well as to such agencies as USAID, the World Bank, the UN Development Program, the African Development Bank, and the Ford Foundation.

Peter is survived by his wife, the former Ana Lillian Columna, daughter Alexandra Bonfante-Warren, sister Eugenia Herbert, brother Robert '50, by several nieces and nephews, and a grandniece. The class extends its sympathy to the family.
