George Spenser Sisson ’44

Published in Apr. 4, 2001, issue

George died on Dec. 9, 2000. He was raised in Erie, Pa., and prepped at Phillips Exeter Academy, and his father was in Princeton's Class of 1912. His major at Princeton was the program in the humanities. He was chair of the Bric a Brac and comanager of Theatre Intime. He roomed with Thurston, Underhill, and Sechrist, and belonged to Campus Club.

After more than three years in the Marine Corps, he joined the State Dept. as a diplomatic courier; his work brought him to Bangkok, Manila, Saigon, Singapore, much of Latin America, and later Russia and France.

He worked for a while in management at Washington's Shoreham Hotel, a field he returned to after a career at Chase Bank in New York, working at The Lodge in Stowe, Vt.

He did not marry; he is survived by his sister, Lois, to whom the regrets of his classmates are sent.
