William Armstrong Hunter III ’42

Published in Oct. 6, 1999, issue

Army Hunter died July 15, 1999, of a heart attack, at home in Weathersfield, Vt. An ordained minister who never actually had a congregation, he was known to all as one whose doctrine was "we minister unto each other." His lifelong love of printing led him to establish and publish, with his wife, Edith, the Weathersfield Weekly.

Army came to Princeton from Berkeley [Calif.] H.S., majored in philosophy, graduated with honors, and was a member of Elm Club. He received a master of divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary in 1945. After teaching and working in publishing, in 1961 he reactivated his boyhood business, The Hunter Press. In 1969 the family moved into the home, in Weathersfield, occupied by his great-great- grandfather from 1802-39.

A dedicated Princetonian, Army became the communications center of the class, first as class secy. and then as v.p. communications. He founded and, until recently, published the '42 newsletter. Hardly a day went by in which Army was not in touch with one or more classmates. We all join his family in mourning the loss of a dear friend who cared so much about others and dedicated his life to a personal ministry. To his widow, Edith, to his sons, Graham '69, Will '77, and Charles, to his daughter, Elizabeth, and to his three grandchildren, the class extends its most profound sympathies.
