Peter G. Lincoln ’65

Published in Mar. 7, 2001, issue

Pete Lincoln died Aug. 6, 2000, in Manhattan from a recurrence of renal cell carcinoma, which he had battled since 1986. Born in Philadelphia, he graduated from Cheltenham H.S. At Princeton, he ate at Tower Club and graduated cum laude in psychology before receiving his PhD in clinical psychology from NYU. He performed his internship at New York Psychiatric Institute. Later, Peter combined private practice with numerous professional affiliations, most recently heading up an outpatient program at St. Luke's/Roosevelt Hospital, where he worked until five weeks before his death. The New York State Psychological Assn., where he served in many executive capacities, has named one of its events "The Peter G. Lincoln Clinical Internship Fair."

Pete's oldest son, Kai, was killed in 1993 in Somalia while a member of the UN Peacekeeping Force. He is survived by his children, Justin and Kara, his life partner of 20 years, Mary McCorry, his parents, Ray and Jerry, a brother, Joe '70, and a sister, Lisa. The class extends its sympathy to all of them on the loss of this fine individual whose focus in life was relieving the suffering of others and who was determined to make the most of what life provides.
