Edwin Boykin Cromwell ’31

Published in Feb. 13, 2002, issue

Eddie was born Nov. 13, 1909, in Manila, and died Sept. 22, 2001. He was 91. Before he became of school age, his family moved to West Point, Miss. While there he entered Mercersburg and stayed until graduation. Then he entered Princeton, where he soon earned numerals on the water polo team, class football team, and became a member of Campus Club.

After graduation, Eddie entered MIT, earned an architecture degree, and shortly thereafter picked his future home, Little Rock, Ark. His firm was Ginnocchio-Cromwell & Associates, where he started as a partner, and ended up as chair emeritus. He was a member of the College of Fellows of the American Institute of Architects and chair of its scholarship fund, and his directorships included the Arkansas Opera Theatre and the Arkansas Territorial Foundation. And he found time to chair in 1979 the PHYD alumni lunch for Pres. Bowen.

Eddie was predeceased by his wife of many years, Henrietta, and is survived by three daughters, Gertrude, Mildred, and Patricia, and six grandchildren. The class extends its deepest sympathy to the family.
