Sandy Thomas passed away Oct. 2, 1995, in Rumson, N.J. He was 82. Born in Elizabeth, Sandy came to Princeton from St. Paul's School, where he pursued racquet sports in addition to his studies. He came from a Princeton family, rowed on the freshman 150-lb. crew, and majored in history. He was a member of Cap and Gown and roomed with Alb Fleitas, Caleb Fox, and Hunter Moss.

Sandy started his business career with Chemical Bank and later became an investment counselor and adviser. He married May Jones (Maizie) in 1940 and they had a daughter, Lucy, in 1954. Sandy was a field artillery captain with the 77th Division in the Pacific during WWII and returned home with a Bronze Star. Sandy chaired the planning board of Middletown, N.J., for several years.

He enjoyed boating and recreation with the Sea Bright Beach Club, the Rumson Country Club, and the Union Club.

We send our sincere sympathy to his widow and daughter.
