Arthur Northwood Jr. ’35

Published in Jan. 28, 1998, issue

Another outstanding scholar of our class, Art Northwood, has died. He was a history major, a junior Phi Bete, president of Whig-Clio, recipient of two Rockefeller Foundation fellowships, and an expert in corporate public relations. His death occurred on Oct. 26, 1997, following several years of battling Alzheimer's and various heart problems.

Before the war, he worked with Time, Inc., as director of special services. When commissioned as an Army lieutenant, he jumped into Europe with the 101st Airborne Division, and later as a captain coauthored the Division's official history, titled "Rendezvous with Destiny." He joined Shell Oil Co. in 1947 and became the firm's division manager for chemical public relations, retiring in 1972.

Art married Jane Hall in 1958. She is a Bryn Mawr graduate who worked closely with Art in his Princeton and other volunteer activities. During the last several years in Montclair, N.J., when Art's health was failing, she shared the job of class agent for Annual Giving, with outstanding results. The university's "Tiger" award was given to Art in 1988 for his years of volunteer service to Princeton.

The class sends sincere sympathy to Jane, and to Art's stepson, Steve Cutaia.
