Ronald Burnham Huseth ’54

Published in May 8, 1996, issue

Ron Huseth died of a heart attack Oct. 27, 1995. Ron came to Princeton from Oak Park H.S. and had just returned to Illinois with his wife, Sandra, to attend his 45th high school reunion.

As an undergraduate, Ron majored in politics, played end on the varsity football team, belonged to Cap and Gown Club, and during his senior year roomed in 1879 Hall with Jack Campbell, Don Keller, and Bob Scheetz.

After graduation and Army service in Germany as an intelligence research analyst, Ron began a distinguished career in marketing and human resources. He started with Quaker Oats and spent the past 23 years as a v.p. with Johnson & Johnson.

Ron was always eager to contribute his energy and experience to activities at Princeton. In addition to class and athletic interests, he served as an industry adviser for university planning. He was on the campus frequently in these capacities, and he maintained a close personal relationship with scores of Princetonians.

To his wife, Sandra; his three children, Sue, Mark, and Amy; and his grandson, Bradford, the class extends its most sincere condolences.

I met Ron in Dec. ’49 before playing against him in a HS basketball game. He was wearing a sweater and knit cap and sitting on a radiator near the locker rooms at Maine Twp. HS. We were last together in June’94, at the 40th Princeton reunion. Back in ’52-’54, at Cap and Gown, we tried to limit ourselves to a single, daily, 8-ball pool challenge match. They were good times with a wonderful friend.
