Michael Edward Bowman ’57

Published in Nov. 22, 2000, issue

"The Bow" died July 27, 2000. He was 66.

Mike graduated from Our Lady's H.S. in Newton, Mass., and did a postgraduate year at Bullis Academy. Mike was capt. of the freshman football team at Princeton. The Bow was a starting lineman for three years, intimidating to opponents and teammates alike. As a senior, Bow was capt. of the 1956 football team and earned first team All-Ivy and All-East honors. His chance for a pro career was cut short by an injury. Mike roomed with Bill Hambrecht, Dick Knorr, and Chuck Sharp. Mike was a member of Cottage Club. After Princeton, Mike served in the Navy Air Force. His business career began at the New Yorker magazine, and from there it moved to Wall Street, where he was in charge of equity trading at White Weld & Co.

Mike is survived by his former wife, Joan, and by his two sons, Michael Jr. and Jonathan. We extend to them our deep condolences.

Contributions in memory of Mike may be made to the Princeton U. '57 Scholarship Fund and sent to Recording Secretary; Princeton University, Box 140, Princeton, NJ 08544.

The Bow was one of a kind and will be missed.
