Published in Apr. 18, 1990, issue

BRINT ROBERTS was killed on July 7, 1989, when the safari vehicle in which he was riding in the Kalahari Desert overturned near Runtu, Namibia.

Born in N.Y.C. on May 14, 1938, Brim attended St. Paul's School where he was a member of the Missionary Society, the Scientific Assn. and played football and hockey, and rowed on the crew.

At Princeton, Brint was a member of the lightweight crew for three years, joined Ivy Club, and was active in the Pre-Law Society and the Keyceptor Program. As an English major, his thesis topic was "The Sea in Literature."

After graduating from Harvard Law School in 1964 and serving as clerk to Chief Justice Herbert P. Wilkins of the Massachusetts Supreme Judicial Court, Brint joined the Boston law firm of Choate Hall & Stewart. He specialized in corporate law and headed his firm's trust department.

Brint was elected to the Board of Selectmen in Sherborn and served on the Board of Appeals in the 1970s. At the family summer home in Upper St. Regis, N.Y., he was a member of the St. Regis yacht club. He was a steward of the Norfolk Hunt Club.

Brint is survived by a son, Nathaniel T., a daughter, Isabel P., his parents, Mr. and Mrs. Henry B. Roberts '36, a brother, Henry B., Jr., and a sister, Polly R. There are many Princeton graduates in the family: four uncles, three cousins, and one grandfather. To all the family, the Class extends its deepest sympathy.
