He came from Greenwich (Conn.) High School, where he was an outstanding student and swam on a team that won the state championship. His father was Walter Scott Newhouse ’27. At Princeton he was a varsity swimmer, ate at Cannon, roomed with Peter Curry and David Hall, and majored in geology.
Following graduation Craig worked in uranium mining and then earned an MBA from Columbia in 1966. He married Elizabeth Ellis of Pueblo, Colo., that year, and they moved west, living seven years in Santa Fe, N.M., and then settling in San Antonio, where they raised their children, Betsy, Jennifer, and Scott. He developed commercial real estate and apartments around the country.
Craig and Liz traveled abroad extensively, were active in their Episcopal parish, Church of Reconciliation, and were founding members of an interfaith charity providing housing free of charge to people near death who either had no home or inadequate caregiving. They moved to Colorado to be near family in 2018 after the death of their son.
The class extends its sincere condolences to Liz, daughters Betsy and Jennifer, and brother Donald.
