Jack died Jan. 1, 2020, in Richmond, Va.
A graduate of St. Paul’s, at Princeton he was varsity crew coxswain and a writer for the Nassau Sovereign. He majored in politics and belonged to Cloister. His father was a member of the Class of 1919.
Jack served in Korea as a battery commander of the 31st Field Artillery and was awarded the Bronze Star and three battle stars. Upon discharge from the Army, he began his lifelong career in the financial world, first in New York and then in Richmond. He preferred the world of analytics, publishing regularly in Barron’s and Advertising Age. His Maxwell Reports covering the tobacco, beverage, and food industries were well respected.
While in Korea he became a collector and connoisseur of Oriental art. He ultimately donated some of his collection and more than 1,200 books to the Virginia Museum of Fine Arts to establish its Maxwell East Asian Collection.
He was active on many civic boards, a member of several historical societies, and a 32-degree master Mason. He enjoyed summering in Bar Harbor, Maine, where he was on the board of the Jackson Laboratory for 18 years.
Jack is survived by his wife, Adrienne, with whom he hosted our 1999 mini-reunion in Richmond; two children; and a stepbrother, Oliver McComas ’52.
