Published in Nov. 5, 2003, issue

Art died April 13, 2003, in Doylestown, Pa., following an extended illness.

Born Oct. 12, 1929, he was the son of Arthur Windels '19 and raised in Brooklyn. He prepared at Brooklyn Polytechnic. At Princeton, he roomed with Bob Belknap and Allen Dulles, and was a history major. He was a member of Whig-Clio, and belonged to Key and Seal. After graduation, he served as an Army artillery lieutenant in Korea, then graduated from Harvard Law School in 1956.

He became an associate of the NY law partnership of Dewey, Ballantine, Bushby, Palmer and Wood, and was made partner in 1963, in one of the shortest rites of passage on record. Art specialized first in litigation and then in corporate law. From 1969-72, he was in charge of Dewey's Brussels office, and he retired from the firm in 1982. Thereafter he became active in the international financial area, principally on behalf of Prudential and other insurance clients.

Art is survived by former wives Mary Meese and Sally Ross; his sister, Anne Banse; daughters Susanne '85 and Sarah; son, Edward; and cousins Paul Windels Jr. '44 and James H.R. Windels '86.
