Jim died June 3, 1995, of cancer. He was 67. He prepared for college at Exeter and at Princeton majored in psychology, was art editor for the Nassau Sovereign, a member of both the Glee Club, and the marching band. He was a member of Terrace Club.
After graduation Jim joined Compton Advertising, Inc. as a market researcher. He spent 1951-52 in the Air Force as an officer instructing in radar/navigation/bombardment.

"Murph" was '49's AG representative from 1990 until his final months. He was always a fine musician, playing several instruments. He was an avid skier, and it was as a member of the ski patrol at Big Bromley, Vt., that he met Diane "Tiny" Dederer, whom he married in 1958.
Jim is survived by his wife, a son, James, a daughter, Carol, and sisters Kathleen and Mimi. To each of them we extend our most profound sympathy at the loss of a wonderful man and devoted '49er.
