Ev died Dec. 3, 2000, at Evanston [Ill.] Hospital, after a long period of failing health. His business career was devoted mostly to print sales in magazines, newspapers, and trade papers that eventually brought him to Winnetka, where he made his home for over 40 years.

Ev prepared at Choate, majored in modern languages at Princeton, and was a member of Cottage Club. During WWII, he spent nearly four years in the Army infantry and the OSS in France and China. Parachuted behind enemy lines in southern France, he operated with the French resistance as the Germans retreated after the allied landing in June 1944. With the rank of capt., he was awarded the Croix de Guerre with palm mounting in diamonds, the Purple Heart, and four battle stars with arrowhead.

After the war, he sold space for Printer's Ink in NYC and the St. Louis Globe Democrat before becoming v.p. and Chicago sales manager for Million Market Newspapers, and later midwest manager of Petersen Publishing Co. He rounded out his career in management consulting, first with his own firm, and then with James Kittleman & Assoc., Inc.

To his widow, Jeanne, his children, Ruth and James, and to his two grandchildren, the class offers its condolences.
