Bud graduated from Western High School in Washington, D.C., and served with the 82nd Airborne (Army) before joining our class until 1950 when he again enlisted in the Army, finishing OCS in 1951 as an artillery second lieutenant. At Princeton he was a member of Charter and the Engineering Society and ran cross country and track.

He began his officer duty in Korea and Vietnam, winning decorations and medals too numerous to mention, as he said in The Book of Our History. He was a master parachutist and pilot, serving as aide to the chief officer at West Point. In 1974 he retired and moved to Chile, where he established an import-export company. In 1980 he moved to Florida and took up real-estate management and brokerage.

Bud died May 4, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Marta; and their children, Edward IV, Marta, John, Christopher, and Bruce. To them the class sends its best wishes with extreme respect for their father’s military service to our country.
