Sandy entered our class from the Haverford School, where he was captain of the golf team and president of the photography club. At Princeton Sandy majored in philosophy, but his most notable activity was producing a film, for which he got class credit. A short fictional gothic story, it was shown at McCarter and garnered articles in The Daily Princetonian and The New York Times. Post graduation, Sandy purchased a restaurant in Charlottesville, Va., but opted out of that and entered the Air Force officer training school. Ending a successful tour, he enrolled in law school at George Washington University, was editor of the law review, and graduated with honors.
He practiced law for 13 years in Philadelphia, worked as a consultant with Security Guarantee Corp. of Baltimore, and was recipient of a service award from the Pennsylvania Land Title Association.
In retirement he and his wife moved to Beaufort, S.C., and fell in love with the area, where he acquired a passion for sailing and croquet.
Sandy is survived by his wife, Peggy Cortright; children Thomas, Abigail, Marion, and Meghan; and nine grandchildren. The class extends its condolences to all.
