He was born in Brooklyn, N.Y., and grew up in Cranford, N.J. He entered Princeton at 16, but transferred and graduated from Columbia and Columbia Law School. He was very attached to Princeton, and Reunions was the high point of his year.
During World War II, Malcolm worked for the Civil Aeronautics Administration War Training Program in Washington. Returning to Princeton, he worked for the Manhattan Project. Until he retired in 1973, he spent 20 years working for the Lehigh Valley Railroad.
His interests were wide-ranging. An avid tennis player, he continued to play into his 90s. He narrated his church’s Christmas pageant for 40 years. He often had the lead in amateur plays and musicals. He was a trained singer, a painter, and an antique clock collector, and he read widely. He and his late wife, Dorothy, lived in Short Hills, N.J., for over 50 years.
He is survived by his daughter and son-in-law, Margaret and Eugene Carlough; daughter Eleanor Warnock; and his grandson, William Carlough.
