Langdon Lea Jr. ’32

Published in Mar. 10, 1999, issue

Lang Lea died Jan. 8, 1999, at Princeton Medical Center, having been in poor health for a number of years.

Most of us remember that in senior year he was voted the best athlete in our class. He came to us from St. Paul's School, and after leaving Princeton he returned to St. Paul's as a member of the faculty. There he taught Latin and coached various sports for many years, except during WWII. He loved the teaching and training of the young, which he described "as a way of life rather than just a profession."

During WWII, he served three and a half years in the Army in North Africa. He never married, but left as his survivors his sister, Mary Lea Page, and his brother, Gilbert '36. To them the class offers its sincere condolences.
