William Arnold ’38

Published in July 3, 1996, issue

Bill Arnold, former statistician and research manager at Eastman Kodak, died Feb. 9, 1995, in Hilton Head, S.C., his retirement home.

He came to Princeton from East Orange [N.J.] H.S., majored in mechanical engineering, and graduated with high honors. He earned an MBA from Harvard business school then joined Eastman for his entire business career. He began in production planning and statistics, served 18 months in "Dog Patch," which we know now was the Manhattan Project in Oak Ridge, Tenn., otherwise entirely in Rochester, N.Y., progressing to new-product research director for graphics materials. He retired in 1977. His family doctor was our Edwin Olsan, recently deceased.

Always involved in schools and other good works, retirement simply meant more time for church and civic activities in Hilton Head as well as golf and travel, which he and Kathryn enjoyed.

Bill is survived by Kathryn, his wife of nearly 50 years, sons Kenneth (with whom Kathryn is living temporarily) and William Jr., and daughter Barbara Pethrick. They have our sincere condolences in their loss.
