Beverly Walden Warner ’37

Published in Nov. 7, 2007, issue

Beverly Walden Warner, known as Waldy, died July 17, 2007, in Manchester, Vt. He was born in Hackensack, N.J., and also lived in Groton, Conn., and Englewood, N.J., where he graduated from the Dwight Englewood School.

Waldy majored in politics at Princeton and was a club champion in squash. He played intramural hockey and was runner-up in 150-pound sculling. He was vice president of Quadrangle Club.

After graduation he held various positions with the Corn Producers Refining Co., eventually becoming executive vice president. He was elected to the board of directors in 1967 and retired in 1978. From 1973 to 1978, he was a director of Bank of America and of Worthen Industries in Nashua, N.H. From 1975 to 1980 he was on the board of trustees of the Hurricane Island Outward Bound School in Rockland, Maine, and later became chairman.

Tired of retirement, Waldy bought Mountain Weavers Inc., a textile-finishing firm, in 1979 and moved the business to Dorset, Vt.

He is survived by his wife of 69 years, Dorothy Snare Warner; two daughters; seven grandchildren; three great-grandchildren; and his brother, Fred ’37. To his family and friends, we express loving sympathy and fond remembrances of a loyal classmate.
