He left to serve three years in the Field Artillery’s 31st Division in the Pacific before returning to get his degree in 1947, with highest honors in history.
Konrad received a fellowship to attend Harvard for a master’s degree. He later earned a Ph.D. and then spent two years teaching at Harvard. He married Georgia Voorhees in 1947 and taught at the University of Miami before taking a job in the federal government’s Foreign Broadcast Information Service, where he had a 26-year career including seven years overseas.
As an immigrant himself, Konrad reached out in friendship and teaching to other Americans and was a founding member of the Linden Project to assist underprivileged children in Washington, D.C. He joined his classmates for the 40th, 50th, and 55th reunions in Princeton.
