Alex graduated from Cincinnati Country Day, where he was active in tennis, basketball, and glee club. At Princeton he majored in philosophy, joined Quadrangle, and was active in interclub sports and freshman tennis. He roomed with Kenly Webster, John Roos, and Mike Babcock.
After graduation he went to Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and subsequently trained in psychiatry and psychoanalysis, which he practiced in Cincinnati. He gradually retired from practice there and then moved to Florida. For many years he was an active tennis player, winning tournaments at Point O’ Woods on Fire Island. He was a reader, especially of murder mysteries, which he loved to solve.
In our 50th-reunion yearbook he said he had been married four times and divorced three times. Had he lived four days longer, he would have celebrated his 20th wedding anniversary with his wife, Barbara Miller.
He is survived by Barbara; his children, Jeffrey, Vincent, and Abigail; and stepsons David and Dennis. Barbara described him as “a quiet man, who adored his family and friends.”
