Robert Lee Hall ’46

Published in Nov. 18, 1998, issue

Bob Hall died Sept. 11, 1998, in NYC, after several years of illness.

Raised in New Jersey, Bob studied philosophy and art at Princeton. After service in the Navy Air Corps, he received his AB in 1946. He then earned an JD at Rutgers Law School and an MA at the New School in NYC, where he completed PhD orals. He taught courses there, including "Man, Magic, and History." Bob pursued a grand plan to write about the evolution of culture and consciousness and completed academic articles on the nature of art. He completed a manuscript of a book on Rembrandt, continuing to write until his death.

From 1947-80, Bob worked for the Prudential Insurance Co. of America. He recently attended the '46 seminars, although wheelchair bound. Bob was married three times, each for about 12-15 years. He is survived by a daughter, Susan Brill, two sons, David and Bruce, and one granddaughter, Katherine Brill. To them the class extends our sympathy.
