Mord died Nov. 25, 2022.
He prepared at Exeter, participated in hockey and dramatics, and won the New England Interscholastic Doubles Championship. At Princeton, he majored in the Woodrow Wilson School and joined Tiger Inn. He continued his involvement in dramatics, joining the Triangle Club and Theatre Intime, and played on the freshman squash and tennis teams.
Mord earned a law degree at Harvard after two years as an officer in the Marines. After a few years in the practice of law, he decided that “business was more interesting — and closer to the fire than law.” After a detour in the U.S. foreign aid program, he spent some time in corporations, in a business consulting firm, and ultimately “went home to write.” He wrote plays (unproduced), blogs, and out-of-the-mainstream books about contemporary problems of our society. Among the self-published titles are A Short Sensible Book about the World, U.S. and Global Warming; Vote 99 Percent: Start Fixing Congress — Start Changing the World; and Churchill’s Horses and the Myths of American Corporations: Power, Stakeholders, and Governance.
He is survived by his partner of 40 years, Sharon Nickles; and his children from a prior marriage, Geoffrey and Caitlin.
