John Alfred Johnson ’48

Published in Apr. 2, 1997, issue

John Johnson died Nov. 22, 1996. He joined us from Choate, was a member of Court Club, and graduated in economics in June 1948. He served in the Navy from 1944-46.

John's business career was with Natl. Standard Steel Co. He was with the company 28 years. He retired in 1988 as a v.p.

Although not active in class or alumni affairs, John's devotion to Princeton was great and was made manifest by a handsome bequest.

His joy was in his family and in country living in Green Pond, N.J. A big challenge was growing a garden in the woods despite the depredations of rabbits and raccoons. Severe winters were a boon to his penchant for ice boating.

To his widow, Ruth, son Daryl, and daughter Catherine, the class extends its deepest sympathy.
