James J. Izard Jr. ’44

Published in July 8, 1998, issue

Jim died Apr. 1, 1998, of pneumonia in Roanoke, Va., one day after his 76th birthday. He had previously suffered several strokes.

Jim came to Princeton from Episcopal H.S. and was captain of our freshman football team. He then played JV football, was a member of Cap and Gown, and majored in political science. He roomed with Sandy James sophomore year and then with Paul Funkhouser '45 junior year. He entered the Air Corps and was a P-47 pilot ready to go overseas as the war ended.

Following a U. of Virginia law degree, he worked first as an attorney for Southern Railway and then with Fidelity and Casualty of New York in its Washington, D.C., office. Except for our second reunion he was out of touch until responding for our 50th yearbook.

He leaves a daughter, Alice Izard Jones, three grandchildren, and a brother, Bolling. He was a good friend of many of us. We missed him over the years and extend our sympathy to his family.
