Harry died Sept. 5, 2023.

Coming from Dwight Morrow High School in Englewood, N.J., he followed his father Wetmore Dawes 1926 to Princeton, where Harry joined Key and Seal Club and majored in philosophy. He loved studying philosophy and observed that writing his thesis was one of the most stimulating intellectual experiences of his life.

Harry earned a medical degree at Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons, which, after service as a captain in the Air Force in Pakistan, led to a long career as a general surgeon. He took great pride and satisfaction as a surgeon during a time of great changes in the profession.

Like many of us at our 60th reunion, however, Harry did comment how happy he was, in this tumultuous age, to be retired. In recent years he and his wife, Nancy, lived in Harrisville, N.H., and Highland Beach, Fla.

Harry is survived by Nancy; children Christopher, Victoria, Jennifer, and Rebecca; and six grandchildren.

Undergraduate Class of 1956
