Eben Clarke Hall ’39

Published in Sept. 8, 1999, issue

Eben died Apr. 2, 1999, at his home in Vero Beach, Fla. In retirement he and Jane, his wife of 53 years, had spent half of each year there-the other half was spent in Little Compton, R.I.

During his active years they lived in Riverside, Conn., while he worked at the Grace Line in NYC from 1940-56, then at ACF Industries Inc. until he retired in 1982. He served on the vestry of St. Paul's Episcopal Church in Riverside and was an elected representative to the Greenwich [Conn.] Town Meeting. Sailing, both racing and cruising, had been his first love, but in the last few years he gave up his boats and enjoyed tennis and golf-both, he said, with only passing ability. In 1959 he wrote to us that he was now majoring in retirement and his marks were better than a gentleman's three.

To Jane, their daughters Susan Mygatt and Sarah Hansel, and seven grandchildren, we offer our sincere sympathy.
