Donald Agnew died at his home on Jupiter Island in Hobe Sound, Fla., on Mar. 10, 1999. After Princeton he attended Harvard Law School, receiving his degree in 1931. On graduation, he joined the firm of Wichen, Middell in Manhattan, became a partner, and remained with the firm until he retired, except for time in the Navy. His naval career, from 1941-45, took him to various stations in the Solomon Islands and the continental U.S. He received two commendation ribbons and retired with the rank of lt. com. In 1947 he married Rebecca Tenney, daughter of a Princeton alumnus.

After he retired from his law firm, Don became a limited partner in Fahnestock & Company. He moved to Florida in 1967. He was a member of the Union Club of NYC, and of the Piping Rock Club in Locust Valley. He is survived by his wife and by eight nieces and nephews. The deepest sympathy of the class goes to his wife and young relatives.
