Until 1957 he was associated with the Manhattan firm of Shearman and Sterling. He then joined the Securities and Exchange Commission, ultimately rising to the post of associate director of corporate finance.

In 1967, Sharon became affiliated with the Washington brokerage firm of Johnston, Lemon and Company, from which he retired in 1989.

He is survived by his widow, the former Louise G. Brown; twin daughters, Nancy Rollins '74 and Barbara de Boinville'74; a son, Clay'78; and five grandchildren. To all the family, we offer our deepest and most heartfelt condolences.
