George H. Cadgene ’40

Published in Oct. 10, 2001, issue

George died Jan. 23, 2001, in Belleaire, Fla., where he had moved in 1989 from Verona, N.J., two years after the death of his first wife, Norcisse E. Kunz.

In 1989 George married Betty Johnson, who survives him. He is also survived by two daughters, Marie Jean and Norcisse Suzanne, as well as two sisters, to all of whom the Class of '40 extends its deepest sympathy.

George came to Princeton in 1936 from Newman School in Lakewood, N.J. In 1940 he received a degree in chemical engineering from Princeton.

He did graduate work at Penn State, Ohio State, and St. John's U. From 1944-46 he was in military service in Oak Ridge, Tenn., working on the Manhattan Project. Thereafter, he spent the next 42 years with a series of companies, where he was primarily engaged in purchasing the essential oils from all over the world needed in the compounding of flavors and fragrances.

George's services to our class and Princeton included serving as class president, secretary, treasurer, class agent, and representative over a period of 50 years. He was an outstanding member of this class, and we all will miss him.
