Preparing at the Haverford and Hill schools, Dick followed his father, Roscoe R. Koch 1909, to Princeton. There he majored in philosophy, graduating summa cum laude and winning the McCosh Prize. He was a Princetonian columnist, a contributor to the Nassau Lit, president of Theatre Intime, and a member of Triangle, Whig-Clio, and Campus Club. Dick attended graduate school at Princeton and graduated from Columbia Law School.
During World War II, he served as a lieutenant in the Navy, writing, directing, and producing motion pictures. From 1957 to 1979 he was general counsel, corporate secretary, and director of administration for the Museum of Modern Art in Manhattan, after working five years as an associate of Winthrop, Stensen, Putnam.
In 1947, Dick married Jacqueline Bloch, with whom he had three sons. The marriage ended in divorce, and in 1967 he married Joanne Godbout, executive director of the Film Society of Lincoln Center. As an avid cineaste, he enthusiastically accompanied her to film festivals in Cannes.
The class sends its sympathy to Joanne; his sons, Stephen, Chapin, and Jeremy; his stepdaughter, Andrea Godbout; seven grandchildren; and two step-grandchildren.
