He came to Princeton from Midwood High School in Brooklyn, where he was president of his class and on the student newspaper. At Princeton Jimmy was in Quadrangle Club, Triangle Club, and on The Daily Princetonian. He majored in history and roomed with Paul Singer.
After graduation Jimmy earned a law degree from Harvard, a diploma in law at Oxford, and much later a Ph.D. from NYU. He practiced law with several New York City firms before opening his own office in Rockefeller Center, which he kept for nine years.
In 1980 he bought and restored an old farmhouse in Vermont. He wrote a memoir, Confessions of an Old Man: Gone Are the Days,in 2019, which should not be missed — some fact and some fiction and nothing you would expect!
Jimmy did not marry and was predeceased by his brother Richard ’56.
