Brendan Patrick White died Nov. 29, 1997, in Philadelphia, of cancer which brought on a heart attack.
Brendan was born Mar. 23, 1951, in Oak Ridge, Tenn. He attended White Bear Lake H.S. in Minnesota where he was an All-State fullback as well as All-State in track in the dashes and the long jump. He was in the All-State choir and was a leading debater and a winner in original speech. At Princeton, he majored in history and was involved in sports and WPRB. Following graduation, Brendan joined the Princeton University Press and worked in marketing, representing a number of University Presses.
Unfortunately Brendan became schizophrenic in his early 20s, and while improving drug therapy made life more tolerable, he lived the difficult life of those condemned to suffer this disease. He served as an inspiration to the medical and nursing teams who worked with him in his willingness and ability to discuss his condition. He also had a deep and abiding interest in comparative religion.
To his parents, Richard and Patricia, and to all family and friends, the Class of '73 extends its condolences and deepest sympathy.
