Dave graduated from Millburn (N.J.) High School in Short Hills, where he earned high honors and was golf and basketball team captain, a member of student government, and treasurer of the Hi-Y Club.
A Woodrow Wilson School major, Dave completed his thesis on Charles de Gaulle, “The Early Years.” A member of Cap and Gown (and longtime member of its board of trustees), he participated in the Pre-Law Society and the Right-Wing Club, and played freshman basketball and golf and JV basketball. He roomed with Karl Pettit, Dave Field, Tom Pritchard, and the late Perry Haines.
Dave attended Columbia, graduating in 1970 with law and MBA degrees, and served six years in the Army Reserve in New York. He worked 14 years in Manhattan for White and Case, then joined Morgan Stanley for 16 years with his last five years in London. Dave worked from 2000 to 2010 at Princeton’s Bendheim Center for Finance and taught a freshman seminar. He fully retired in 2010, declaring that the most enjoyable years of his career were those teaching at the University.
Dave is survived by his wife, Mary, whom he met senior year and married in 1968; son David; daughter Kate ’00; brother Robert ’70; and three grandchildren, Jack, Nora, and Rosie. The Class of 1967 is diminished by the loss of one of its brightest stars.
