He graduated from St. Mark’s and was with us for two years before leaving Princeton to travel extensively with the Moral Re-Armament movement, which dedicated itself to the reconciliation of European countries and to offsetting the rise of communism. He later earned a bachelor’s degree at the University of Vermont.
After serving in the Army in Korea, he returned stateside to Officer Training School, became a psychological warfare instructor, and was an aide to Camp Kilmer’s (N.J.) commanding general. After completing his military service, he joined Up With People as a tour director.
In 1970 he decided to settle down in Vermont, where he and his first wife, Lydia, adopted three children. There he became a director of the state department of welfare, and he worked for the state until he retired in 1997.
Ken loved to read and closely followed politics and world affairs. He was an avid Red Sox fan, dating back to his boyhood visits to Fenway Park. Though on campus a short time, he remained in touch with our class.
Ken is survived by his second wife of 33 years, Toby; two daughters; three sons; five grandchildren; and his cousin, Mead ’50.
