At the Service of Remembrance on Alumni Day, Princeton will pay tribute to students, alumni, faculty, and staff members whose deaths were recorded in 2021. The moving ceremony was held virtually last year because of the COVID pandemic; this year, Princeton planned to return to the service’s traditional home, the Chapel. 

In this issue, PAW, too, offers its tribute to those whose lives ended last year. As always, we hope the profiles here provide inspiration, bring back good memories, and remind you of others you knew on campus. We welcome your comments about these Princetonians and others.

The Service of Remembrance takes place at 3 p.m., Saturday, Feb. 19. For more information about Alumni Day, visit
