Published in Oct. 25, 1989, issue

Joe Corr died suddenly of heart failure on July 8, 1989. Joe came to us from Bronxville High School, and his club at Princeton was Cloister. He served as a paraŽtrooper in WWII and was honored with a Bronze Star.

After Princeton and matriculation at Harvard Business School, Joe was recalled to military duty and served an extended tour in Korea. Joe began his career as an adverŽtising man in 1953, when he started a nine-year stint with Scott Paper. He then returned to N.Y.C. and worked on the agency side of the business for seven years with Young & Rubicam. Joe later held ad positions at Time, Inc., Philip Morris, and Heublein. From 1981 to 1983, Joe was the publisher of Vanity Fair. He then returned to advertising as the president of Corwyn & Donahue. In 1987, he founded Corr & Till. Joe also was a gifted and published cartoonist, and he served on the Publication Board of PAW.

To his daughter, Kathleen, and son, David, the class extends its deepest sympathy.
