Tony died April 16, 2015, in Paris, having been in poor health recently. His home was in the United States, but he also lived in Paris and Vienna.

He came to Princeton from St. Paul’s School and majored in romance languages and literature. Tony’s varied career was as a private investor, operating out of New York and Paris. He was  co-founder of Breguet Construction Corp. in France and an officer and board member of the Carolina Mirror Corp. in the United States.

Among his charitable causes were the Metropolitan Opera and the Metropolitan Museum in New York, the American Hospital in Paris, and the Marjorie Merriweather Post (Tony’s grandmother) Hilltop Museum in Washington, D.C. He also served on the advisory council for Princeton’s department of romance languages and literature.

For his work in renovating his mother’s historic home in Vaux-sur-Seine outside of Paris, he was made a Chevalier des Artes et Lettres in France. His devotion to Princeton and to St. Paul’s was strong throughout his life, and he is buried in the Princeton Cemetery.

Tony’s only marriage ended in divorce. He had one daughter, Laetitia Vere, who lives in London. The class sends its sympathy to Tony’s daughter and his cousins, nieces, and nephews.
