Published in Sept. 13, 1995, issue

Laurence C. Ward died June 17, 1995, in Vero Beach, Fla., at Indian River Memorial Hospital after a series of serious problems. Born in Newark, N.J., he attended Lawrenceville. At Princeton, he was a member of the Intra-Collegiate Athletic Committee, the Thursday Afternoon Club, and Cap and Gown.

Living in South Orange, N.J., he was treasurer of American Radiator and Standard Sanitary Corp. in N.Y.C. Later, he moved to Princeton. In 1976, he moved to Vero Beach. Larry served in the Navy from 1943-45 on shore duty, and left with the rank of lieutenant.

Larry became executive v.p. of finance and a director of American Standard, was a member of the Council of Financial Executives, the Natl. Industrial Conference Board, the Advisory Committee of Chase Manhattan Bank, and a director of the Clark Equipment Co.

Larry is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; two daughters, Beverly Docter and Patricia White; a brother, Robertson D. Ward; five grandchildren; and a great-granddaughter. His son died four years ago. To all his family, our sympathy goes out for the loss of our dynamic classmate, who was such a faithful Princetonian and '31er in many ways. We all will miss him.
