Sam Van Meter died on May 3, 1999. He was 73.

He came to us after graduating from St. Andrews, where he was a member of the student government and participated in football, basketball, and baseball, and after a two-year stint in the Army Air Corps.

After Princeton Sam returned to Winchester, Ky., where he became a lifelong farmer of 800 acres. Following his death, his ashes were spread on the farm.

Sam is survived by his wife of nearly 50 years, Elizabeth, a son, Samuel W. III, and two daughters, Eleanor and Lucie, to whom the class offers its deepest sympathies.
