Fred, whose life was spent investigating gravity, died May 31, 2023. He was born Nov. 20, 1933, in the Bronx and attended Ardsley High School in Ardsley, N.Y. There he participated in student government and dramatics.

At Princeton, he joined Prospect Club and majored in theoretical physics. His special interest was amateur radio. After graduation he continued graduate work in physics at Princeton until 1962.

He taught physics as a professor at Clarkson University until retiring to work on his own. He noted in our 45th-reunion yearbook that “My gravitational research is funded by the National Science Foundation. I am organizing Mieders Micro meetings on exact solutions to Einstein’s equations.”

Fred is survived by his wife, Charlotte.
