Dave McCarroll died Dec. 6, 2002.
Dave prepared for college at the John Burroughs School in St. Louis, where he was a National Merit finalist. He then followed his brothers, John C. McCarroll '57 and Henry Relton McCarroll '58, to Princeton.
At Princeton he majored in English and wrote a thesis titled "Ulysses Chaos and Cosmos." If that title is daunting, it could not have been any more complicated than Dave's submission to our 25th Reunion book, which cited Plato, Kant, Phaedrus, Wittgenstein, and Walt Disney, among others.
Dave roomed with Lauson Cashdollar and Dick White, and was a member of Quadrangle Club. He was active in a number of campus activities, including freshman soccer. Following Princeton, Dave earned a master's in English at U. Va. and a master's of library science at the U. of Missouriâ€“Columbia.
Our last correspondence with Dave indicated that he was an instructor in the arts and sciences at the U. of Missouriâ€“Columbia. His daughter, Sarah, reports that during his last several years, he devoted himself full-time to his favorite pastimes, reading and gardening.
To his daughter, his sister, Sarah Hunsaker, and his surviving brother, Henry, the class extends its heartfelt sympathy.
