Published in Mar. 8, 2000, issue

Frank Hartley died peacefully in his sleep at his home in Winfield, Ill., on Mar. 4, 1999. He was 76.

At Boston Public Latin School, where Frank prepared for Princeton, he participated in dramatics, was v.p. of the Highway Safety Club, and played golf, football, and baseball. He spent 1943-46 as an aviation cadet in the US Navy Air Corps. At Princeton, Frank was in SPIA, was pres. of the Triangle Club and business manager of WPRU. He was also a member of Orange Key

After graduating Frank began a long career with Sears Roebuck & Co. as a merchandising trainee in Bangor, Maine. One of those rare individuals who spent his entire working life with one company, he retired from Sears after 40 years. As director of college relations he delivered career lectures at Princeton.

An inveterate hoofer and actor, Frank continued his interest in amateur show biz throughout his life. He also maintained his interest in Princeton and was a regular at mini-reunions.

Frank is survived by Mae, his wife of 52 years, two daughters, Pamela (Wayne) Kowalczyk and Julianne, a son, Stephen, and two grandchildren, to whom the class sends its deepest sympathies.
