Everett Knapp Dilworth ’56

Published in Nov. 19, 1997, issue

Ev Dilworth died Apr. 15, 1997, in Pittsburgh, Pa., of a ruptured aortic aneurysm. He was the son of Harrison P. Dilworth Jr. '22. Ev came to Princeton from St. Paul Academy in St. Paul, Minn. At Princeton he majored in economics and was a member of Campus Club. His roommates in senior year were Allen Balsbaugh, Kermit A. Brandt, Thomas Osborn, Fred S. Sater, and John C. Scott. Following graduation, Ev attended law school at the U. of Michigan, where he roomed with another classmate, Garry Heher. Ev was admitted to the Pennsylvania Bar in 1960. He joined the firm of Patterson, Crawford, Arensberg & Dunn, where he became a partner. He left in 1981 to go into private practice specializing in oil and gas and trust estate law. Ev will always be fondly remembered for his wit, devotion to family, loyalty to his friends, and his enormous generosity. He loved St. Paul Academy and Princeton with a great passion. He is, and always will be, sorely missed by all of us who knew and worked with him.

Ev is survived by his wife, Janice, their son, George, his brother, Harrison, and his sister, Stephenie Crane. The class extends to each of them its sincerest sympathy.
