Patrick Carlisle Beattie ’23

Published in July 10, 1991, issue

WE LOST OUR very special classmate and loyal Tiger when Pat died Nov. 1, 1990. He lived at Catskill, N.Y. Pat was born in Arlington, NJ., Dec. 16, 1900. He prepared for Princeton at the Newman School, Lakewood, NJ., where he was on both the football and hockey teams. On die Princeton campus he continued active as a member of the football squad. He belonged to the Catholic Club and Whig Hall, and served as the Maurer of Campus Club.

In our Class Nassau Herald, Pat states that he planned to become a banker, but he must have changed plans, for he had an impressive career with B. Altman and Co, in N.Y. as chief buyer for the retail departments. He did our Class a great favor by having Altman's produce our Class tie, never less than one gross per order. No wonder 1923 always had a few ties to give to entering sow of '23 and also to varsity football players. Charlie Caldwell had a 1923 tie. Always a responsible citizen, Pat served his country with distinction in WWII as a battery commander, Coast Artillery, at Ft. Getty, R.I. He was later ordered to Fort Meade, Md. His last duty was at Camp Adair, Oreg.

Pat lost his wife, Mary Deane, in 1979. The Class of 19Z3 is proud of Pat and fully appreciated his many services to the Class.
