Published in June 4, 1997, issue

Gene died Feb. 23, 1997, from angina and esophageal cancer. He was 83. The family lived in New Canaan, Conn.; Naples, Fla.; and Charlottesville, Va.

Although Gene did not graduate, he maintained a strong interest in Princeton. During the time he lived in Connecticut, he was a regular at class gatherings. In Florida he helped establish the Princeton Club of Southwest Florida. He maintained a strong interest in the Gunnery School, which he had attended, and he was a faithful Rotarian.

Gene was an officer and director of the Takamine Ferment Co. in New York (Japanese importers), and was publisher for 53 years of the "Russell Law List." These occupations involved considerable foreign travel.

He married Marjorie "Midge" Brainard in 1940, and they enjoyed over 56 years of happiness. They had three children, Eugene C. III '64, and two daughters, Brooke Rosenfeld and Alethea Worden. The class offers its deepest sympathy to all.
