Bob died Apr. 12, 2001, after a short illness. He was 76 and was born and educated in Lyndhurst, N.J.

Bob came from a long line of Princetonians: grandfather Luther E. Price 1888, father William E. Price '23, and two uncles. He was prepared to enter Princeton in 1943 but because of WWII entered the Navy V-12 program. He was sent to MIT and Dartmouth, from which he graduated. After his war service he entered Princeton, studied engineering and received his master's in 1947.

Bob had a long, distinguished career as a professional engineer. He was manager engineering of Interpace Corp. from 1961-78 and president of Openaka Corp. from 1978-2001.

He was a fellow of the American Concrete Institute and a director of ACI from 1981-84. He also authored numerous articles relating to cement and concrete. His specialty was large diameter pipe.

Bob served on Denville, N.J.'s boards of health and adjustment.

He is survived by his wife of 54 years, Margaret, sons Alexander and Robert, three grandchildren, and a brother. To the entire family, the class extends its deepest sympathy.
