Hig died of a cerebral hemorrhage Oct. 15, 2001, at Atlantic City Hospital near his home in Smithville, N.J. Though born in Atlantic City, Hig spent much of his working life where his assignments with the DuPont Co. took him. He joined DuPont as a chemical engineer in 1940 and held various supervi-sory positions. His final assignment, which involved a multimillion-dollar expansion project and required extensive travel, was most gratifying. After retiring in 1981, he had time to indulge in his favorite hobbies, chief among them stamp-collecting. He was a member of the American Philatelic Society and the U.S. Philatelic Classics Society. In 1984 he married Katherine Louise Bradley, who is his only survivor. We share her sense of loss and offer her our sincere sympathy.
