Archie, born in New York City in 1933 to Archibald Stevens and Susanne Tilton Alexander, died Nov. 28, 2016, of cancer and muscular dystrophy in Bozeman, Mont.

Archie was a descendant of John Stevens, who received a land grant from Queen Anne in 1699 and was a member of the Stevens family of Hoboken, N.J., founders of the Stevens Institute of Technology. He came from St. Paul’s School to Princeton, where he joined Ivy Club, wrote his thesis on Spenserian allegory, and lettered in freshman and varsity crew. He roomed at 523 1903 Hall with Charles Orr and James Follis.

After two years in the 82nd Airborne Division, Archie took up law, and from 1968 to 1974, he passionately advocated correctional reform to protect prisoners’ rights. He taught at Rutgers Law School, where he created a seminar on providing civil legal services to state prison inmates.

In 1977, Archie moved to Bozeman, where he developed a great love for the outdoors. He taught business law and management at Montana State University and shared his love of the humanities and passion for critical thinking through the works of Foucault and Nietzsche. He received federal funding for a public school in Lame Deer, Mont., where today’s curriculum includes Cheyenne language and culture.

Archie is survived by his wife, Nina; and children Benjamin, Jocelyn ’87, and Christopher.
