Published in the Mar.21, 2012, issue

Edward (“Wint”) Winters died Oct. 20, 2011, in Boothbay Harbor, Maine.

Ed was born in Watkins Glen, N.Y., and came to Princeton from the Penn Yan Academy. At Princeton he majored in histo ry, was a member of the Princeton Swimming and Life-Saving Club, and carved his name into the mantel of 43 Blair, where it remains to this day.

After college, he worked as an industrial engineer for General Motors. He served in the Navy during World War II, marrying the admiral’s daughter. The bulk of his professional career was spent at Booz, Allen Hamilton as a management consultant, working primarily in Iran, Italy, and Holland. In retirement, Ed played recorder, sailed out of his home in Maine, was a dedicated bird watcher, and worked for the passage of Maine’s first bottle-deposit law.

After two divorces, he reunited with his college sweetheart, the late Mary Rose Barrows (Mount Holyoke ’36), in 1969.

Ed is survived by two daughters, Susanna Barlow and Robin Johnson; two stepsons, Walter Barrows ’63 and Timothy Barrows ’66; nine grandchildren, including Kathryn Barrows ’00; and eight great-grandchildren.
