He came to Princeton from Hotchkiss School, where he was managing editor of the newspaper and active in dramatics. At Princeton Paul was Mr. WPRB for four years. He was a member of Cloister Inn and majored in psychology. He roomed with Dave Smith, Fred Sillman, Dick Morgan, and Benji Horne.
After two years in the Army, Paul began a lifelong career in radio. He started in New York City at WMCA, then moved to Geneva, N.Y., to become general manager of WGVA. In 1968 he became general manager and part owner of two Utica radio stations, and when they were sold in 1988, he moved on to public radio at WCNY-TV/FM in Syracuse and managed the classical-music radio operation.
He retired in 2004 but kept busy in his community, where he was president of the Utica Symphony Orchestra, a member of the Oneida County Democratic Committee, and interim director of the Mohawk Valley Council on Alcoholism/Addictions. In the winters, Paul and his wife, Anne, went to Panajachel, Guatemala, where they devoted themselves to an English-language school.
Paul is survived by his wife of 56 years, Anne; daughter Kate ’88; sons David and Nat; and eight grandchildren. The class sends its condolences to them all.
