Graham was born Jan. 31, 1933, in New York City, the son of Graham Jones ’29. He graduated from Exeter Academy and at Princeton majored in religion and literature and joined Ivy Club. After graduation he served in the Marines.
He joined W. E. Hutton on Wall Street and then Burnham & Co., becoming CFO of that company as Drexel Burnham Lambert. Later Graham was a board member for numerous mutual funds.

Graham was a formidable amateur athlete. As a teenager he won Connecticut state championships in tennis and golf, and he carried those skills into adult life. A longtime friend said of Graham, “He was as friendly and personable a fellow as you would ever want to meet.”
