Edward Bostick Whitman II ’66

Published in Apr. 17, 1996, issue

Ned died July 27, 1995 in Essex, Conn., after a yearlong, courageous battle with liver cancer.

Born in Baltimore, he soon moved with his family to Avon, Conn. Ned prepped at Saint Paul's School and followed a long line of family members to Princeton including his grandfather, Edward B. '10 and his father, Horace B. '42, both deceased. He majored in history and was a member of Charter Club.

After a three-year stint in the Navy, he earned an MBA at Columbia Univ. Ned worked for several firms before settling in Essex, Conn., in the 1970s. He established World Trade Associates. His business took him to the Far East, where he was involved in the importing of machine valves.

Ned, whether at Princeton, in the navy, in the workplace, or at home, was always true to himself. He approached life with a sense of humor and directness that endeared him to family and friends.

He is survived by his wife, Patty; two daughters, Maggie and Laura; his mother, Margaret; and a sister, Grace. To all of them we extend our sympathy.
