Edward Charles Eisenhart ’42

Published in Apr. 24, 2002, issue

Ed died Oct. 18, 2001, at home in Charlottesville, Va., of a heart attack. After a long career in the magazine field he retired in 1974 to devote his energies to pro-bono activities. A dedicated second-generation Princetonian, Ed never missed an opportunity to stay in touch with classmates, and served as national chairman of AG. We all mourn the loss of a dear friend and a loving husband, who will long be remembered by those whose lives he touched.

Ed prepared for Princeton at Asheville School, majored in history, and was a member of Quadrangle Club. During the war he worked for the U.S. Economic Administration and the State Dept. in Africa. After the war he held positions with Curtis Publishing Co., United Press, and U.S. News & World Report. In addition to broad-based civic involvement, Ed was a trustee of Ithaca College, Asheville School, and the National Presbyterian Church in DC.

To his wife, Lala, whom he married in 1974, with honorary classmate Ernest Gordon officiating, the class extends its most profound sympathies.
