Charles F. Nesslage ’30

Published in Sept. 9, 1998, issue

Charles died Feb. 1, 1998. Born in Union City, N.J., on June 23, 1909, he prepared at the Mt. Hermon School in Massachusetts. At Princeton, he was awarded scholarships and was active in student engineering organizations. President of the Gateway Club, he graduated with high honors in electrical engineering.

After graduation, he joined RCA as a development engineer, designing many receiving tubes and ultimately heading up the then-top secret Radar Tube Unit during the war. An avid radio amateur, he spent summers at the Jersey Shore and many winters in Florida.

In 1930 he married Marion McConahy. Charles is survived by four children, Mrs. Allen Stoneback, Arthur L., Donald J., and Jeanne Reilly, as well as nine grandchildren and five great-grandchildren. To his family we send our most sincere sympathy.
