Frederick E. Rowe ’40

Published in Dec. 6, 1995, issue

After a long illness, retired advertising and investment executive Fred Rowe died Sept. 15, 1995, at his home in Dallas, Tex. He attended Haverford School. Fred graduated with history honors from Princeton, and his prowess in basketball and baseball was widely recognized. He was a Navy officer in WWII serving in the Pacific area. He married Marian Knight in 1943. He was introduced to her by his Princeton roommate Johnny Angst.

After the war, Fred worked for Fairchild Publications and the Dallas Times Herald, later joining Tracy Locke, an advertising firm. In 1969 he went with Schneider, Bernet & Hickman, a Dallas-based securities firm. He retired in the mid-1980s.

Despite illness which prevented him from sharing in class activities and friendships in recent years, Fred's affection and interest in Princeton and '40 remained constant and unwavering. In Fred we have lost another notable and well-respected class figure. He is survived by his wife, Marian; son Frederick Jr.; daughter Marion Rowe Lion; and six grandchildren. To them all, the class sends its deepest sympathy.
