Sam died March 4, 2006, after an extended struggle with pulmonary fibrosis.
Born in Louisville, Ky., he graduated from the Louisville Male High School. At Princeton, he majored in architecture, was a member of Key and Seal Club, and was active in WPRU and publications.
After graduation, he was the recipient of three Fulbright scholarships. He studied architecture at North Carolina State and obtained a master's degree in urban design from Harvard University. In 1963, Sam began a 35-year career in teaching urban design at the University of Cincinnati. That career included many major urban projects, as well as teaching, researching, and consulting in the Middle East and southern Asia. He also drafted legislation for historic preservation.
While serving on many planning committees and lecturing throughout the world, sailing remained Sam's favorite pastime. He loved the challenge of navigating, the beauty of the sky, the sea, and the peacefulness of nature.
The class extends its sympathy to Lynn, his wife of 50 years; his sons, Stephen and David; and granddaughters Dominga and Samantha.
