At Princeton Charlie majored in economics, was a sports announcer for WPRB, joined Whig-Clio, played in the University Band, wrote biographies for the Nassau Herald, and trod the links on the golf team. He ate at Tiger Inn and roomed with clubmates Dick Konz, Bob Fitzpatrick, and Arthur Allen.
After graduation Charlie matriculated at the University of Cincinnati Law School, becoming editor-in-chief of the Cincinnati Law Review and earning a law degree in 1962. He worked in private practice for 10 years, in corporate practice as general counsel to Senco Products, in the business world of marketing and sales with Senco, and then brought his career full circle as counsel to Strauss & Troy.
Charlie continued his connection to golf throughout his life and added other hobbies and interests that included skeet, trap, sporting clays, and pistol shooting; photography; astronomy; furniture building; and sailing.
