Mark L. Davidson ’66

Published in Oct. 7, 1998, issue

Mark Davidson lost his battle against cancer June 18, 1998. Mark died in Washington, D.C., where he had been in government service as deputy director of the Bureau of Competition at the Federal Trade Commission and later in private law practice. He had been in Washington for 20 years.

A graduate of Horace Mann H.S. in NYC, Mark entered Princeton with the Class of '67. His brilliant intellect surfaced early, and he graduated in three years with us. He was a Woodrow Wilson Scholar, a member of Campus Club, and a talented member of the Triangle Club. Throughout his life, Mark always had the ability to entertain his friends and colleagues. He was an avid member of the monthly Class of '66 Lunch Bunch in D.C.

After Princeton, Mark attended Columbia Law School and was a Harlan Fiske Scholar. In the private legal practice and in government service, Mark demonstrated his agile mind and energetic enthusiasm. Later, he had his own firm.

To Mark's mother, Bernice Rogers, his brother, James, and his longtime devoted friend, Nellie Chao, the class extends its deep sympathy. Break a leg, Mark!
