With the Feb. 6 issue, we hope to begin a new tradition: We will profile a small number of alumni, chosen by the editors, who died during the prior year. The alumni profiled are not necessarily well known, though many are. Nor did all make extraordinary contributions to public life, though some did. But behind each person — nine men and one woman — was a poignant or unusual personal story that we wanted to tell. We invite you to share your thoughts in the comments at paw.princeton.edu.
