Neil joined us after entering with the Class of ’66, following a gap for Army service. He came to Princeton from Chester (Pa.) High School, where he was active in student council, track, and playing French horn in the state band and orchestra. At Princeton, he majored in politics, writing his thesis on “Private Pre-Payment Plans for Medical Care,” and was active in Whig-Clio, WPRB, the Trenton Tutorial Project, and the Latin Affairs Committee. He was awarded a research grant by the Committee on Regional Studies. Neil ate independently and lived at 126 1903 his senior year.
Following graduation, he was employed in fiscal affairs for the City of Philadelphia. He subsequently became an investment adviser and then assisted his father in managing family investments in Boynton Beach, Fla. He was an active contributor and supporter of several charitable organizations, including the Omenn Fund for Dental Services for Needy Children and Populations at the Hebrew University/Hadassah Medical Center Dental School in Jerusalem. He was an avid tennis player and played four times a week until the time of his passing.
Neil was preceded at Princeton by his brother, Gil ’61. His family is making a gift to Princeton, and a University professorship will be established in Neil’s name. The class offers its deepest sympathies to his extended family and friends.
