Ralph Cavalier ’58

Published in Oct. 24, 2001, issue

Ralph Cavalier died on May 29, 2000. Ralph was raised in Margate, N.J., and came to Princeton from Atlantic City H.S.

At Princeton he rowed with the 150-lb. freshman crew, majored in biology, and was a member of Charter Club. After leaving Princeton, he received his medical degree from Hahnemann and went on to become a very distinguished orthopedic surgeon. Ralph was a past president of the New Jersey Orthopedic Society and past chairman of the Dept. of Surgery of the Atlantic City Medical Center.

For those who knew Ralph at Princeton it is easy to imagine how his family and patients must have loved him. He was always cheerful and had a wonderful way of spreading his positive attitude to others. This characteristic and his ability to treat everyone as special were very endearing qualities.

The class sends its sympathy to his wife, Carole, daughter Gwen, and son Buck.
