Pat died Feb. 1, 2023, in New Orleans. He was 87.
He came to Princeton from the Isidore Newman School in New Orleans, where he was on the debate team and was valedictorian. At Princeton, he majored in Classics and was business manager of the Lit. He belonged to Prospect Club.
After graduation, Pat earned a master’s degree from the University of California at Berkeley and was hired by the Clark Memorial Library at UCLA. Early on, he became the head catalog librarian and, after more than 30 years, he retired as the librarian of rare books and manuscripts.
With John Horton, his partner of 54 years, Pat enjoyed daily hikes in the hills off Mulholland, intrepid world travels, and the life-enhancing pleasures of good food and wine. An omnivorous reader and classic-film aficionado, he was known for his quick wit and deadpan delivery.
Pat was predeceased by John in 2018. He is survived by his brother, Walter; his nephew, Rob; and his niece, Caroline. The class extends its deepest sympathy to them all.
