Kurt died Feb. 18, 2023.
A native of Elizabeth, N.J., Kurt graduated from Deerfield Academy and attended Princeton for two years, then transferred to MIT’s School of Architecture. While at MIT he was a member of St. Anthony Hall fraternity.
Following graduation from MIT, Kurt joined the architecture and engineering firm CUH2A in Princeton. He held many positions at CUH2A including architect, project manager, managing partner, and for the last five years before his retirement in 1992, chief executive officer.
His obituary reads that “he was an enthusiastic and knowledgeable collector of 18th/19th-century American antiques, loved working in his gardens, became an avid hiker in the mountains around his home in Tucson, and a formidable bridge player, well-loved by his partners and opponents since he never criticized either. He was also a dedicated crossword enthusiast, faithfully solving both the daily and Sunday New York Times puzzles, rarely missing a day even when traveling.” He was married to Peggy Maxwell in September 1981, and she is his sole survivor.
