Carl H. Duisberg ’44

Published in Oct. 8, 1997, issue

Carl Duisberg died July 28, 1997, in Zurich, Switzerland, where he had resided since 1965. At Princeton he majored in biology and was a member of Theatre Intime and Elm Club. Carl left Princeton in 1943 for service in the Army Field Artillery and returned for his AB in 1947. He received an MBA from Harvard Business School in 1949.

Carl followed a family tradition into the chemical industry and joined Merck and Co. In 1958 he was put in charge of the Middle East, Southern Europe, and African operations. Ten years later he joined Upjohn as manager of its international operations. He retired at the age of 67. After retirement he set up a consulting client list of a dozen pharmaceutical companies. Just before his death, he was developing a luxury marina/club hotel project on the Isle of Rhodes.

Carl was a very sincere and highly intelligent person who, after his wife, Jacqueline Ann, prematurely died in 1982, devoted much time and energy, despite his many business activities, to raising his two sons, Carl H. III and Christopher H. To them the class extends its deepest sympathy.
