Morton Schiff Jr. ’27

Published in Oct. 8, 1997, issue

Morton Schiff Jr. died in Sarasota, Fla., Mar. 29, 1997. Mort came to us from South Side School in Newark, N.J., and majored in economics. He roomed in Holder with Bernard Weisl our senior year.

After graduation, he lived in West Orange, N.J., and carried on his father's insurance business of Schiff, Terhine & Co. in NYC. He later became a group claims representative for Prudential Insurance Co. in its NYC office. He married Carolyn Sternberger in Newark in 1930, and they had a daughter, Nancy Jean. Still later, he became manager of Prudential's insurance claim division in Newark.

Mort was a golfer, a bowler, and a member of the New Jersey state championship team of four in duplicate bridge. In 1971, he retired and moved to Longboat Key, Fla. He is survived by his daughter, Nancy Kridel, two grandchildren, and one great-grandchild, to all of whom our class sends its sympathy.
