Kay Wagenknecht-Harte died Apr. 26, 1997, after a three-year battle with breast cancer.
Kay was born May 19, 1951, in St. Paul, Minn., and graduated from Wayland Academy in Beaver Dam, Wis. At Princeton, she joined Tower Club and was a member of the department of art and archeology, later receiving a master's degree in architecture from the U. of Texas and a master's in landscape architecture from Texas A&M U.
Though recently a resident of Portland, Maine, Kay lived for many years in Austin, Tex., where she and her husband, Christopher, were well-known in local arts and civic circles. During that time, Kay cofounded Greater Texas Landscapes Inc., a landscape design firm. Moving on later to Florida, Pennsylvania, Ohio, and then finally Portland, Kay also taught college level design courses, and was active in the arts and civic groups of all the cities in which she lived.
In addition to her husband, Christopher, and son, William, Kay leaves her father, Theodore Wagenknecht; two sisters, Lynn Wagenknecht and Ann Dubois; two brothers, Jon Wagenknecht '71 and Karl Wagenknecht; and two half-siblings, Eric Wagenknecht and Celenda Wagenknecht. To all relatives and friends, the Class of 1973 extends condolences and its deepest sympathy.
