Hally Peter Wall ’44

Published in Dec.20, 2000, issue

Peter died on July 9, 2000, after a 10-year battle with Parkinson's disease. He came to Princeton from St. Paul's School, winning freshman numerals in hockey and joining Ivy Club. He left at the end of his sophomore year to enter the air corps, where he was trained as a bombardier/navigator, flying combat missions over Europe in B-17s for the 401st Bomber Group, Eighth Air Force.

After WWII, Peter joined the sales force of the Wall Rope Works, a family firm. He moved to Princeton and was active in class, club, and university activities, rarely missing a football game. In later years, he and Patty wintered in Beaufort, S.C., vacationing summers on Fisher's Island, N.Y.

He was a member of the Nassau Club, the Fisher's Island Club, and the Dataw Island Club of Beaufort.

He is survived by his wife, Patricia Men Wall, a son, Alexander, two daughters, Anne and Amy, and four grandchildren. Peter was a bright spirit in our midst, a warm friend, and a loyal Princetonian who will be sorely missed by his classmates.

Have thought of you often over the years, Pierre. Now there is only sadness.

I have the fondest memories of spending time at the Wall household during my four years at Princeton. Peter was a true gentleman. God bless.
