Garret died Sept. 17, 2001. He was 91.

Garret lived in Scarsdale, N.Y., until his marriage to Cornelia Hadsell. Together they lived in New Canaan, Conn., then moved to Wilton, Conn., before retiring to Vermont: first in Woodstock, then at Wake Robin, a C.C.R.C. in Shelburne.

Garret graduated from Riverdale School and Princeton, where he belonged to Dial Lodge. He received an engineering degree at Princeton's Graduate School. He spent his working life with Electrolux in Old Greenwich, Conn. Garret belonged to the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, the American Acoustical Society, and the American Assn. for the Advancement of Science. He also was a member of the Wilton Riding Club, the Woodstock Country Club, and the Round Table in Woodstock. He was a sailor, a member of the Norwalk Yacht Club, and taught courses in celestial navigation for the U.S. Power Squadron.

Surviving, besides his widow, are two sons, Garret III and Lawrence Harper, to all of whom the class extends its condolences.
