FUNK G. DARLINGTON of the Class of 1914 died March 3, at his home in Leetsdale, Penn. He majored in civil egeneering at Princeton, was a member of Phi Beta Kappa, Ivy Club, and the Princeton Yacht Club. He later received a joint degree from M.I.T. and Harvard.

He entered the engineering department of Standard Steel Spring Co., which built leaf springs for automobiles. Retiring from that field of service, he served as assistant trust officer in the Peoples Savings and Trust Co. of Pittsburgh. He later retired in 1930 to look after his family interests.

In 1935 he joined the New York Power Squadron of the U.S. Power Squadron, an organization dedicated to safety on the rivers and seas. From 1935 to 1954 he covered approximately 5,000 miles along the Maine coast in his motor cruiser and schooneryacht, MARMION.

Mr. Darlington was one of the founders of the Hyannis Port Yacht Club, and served the club in various capacities until his death.

Mr. Darlington married Jessica Raymond in April 1922. Mrs. Darlington predeceased her husband, as did also their son, Edward Raymond Darlington.

Surviving are a daughter, Mrs. Douglas W. Lefferts, and three grandchildren, Jessica Raymond Williamson, Frank Darlington Guinan, and Carolyn G. Guinan.

To them the class of 1914 extends its kind respects and deepest sympathy.
