Published in Oct. 8, 1997, issue

Dr. James "Pat" Maroney died July 23, 1997, at the Morristown Memorial Hospital. He came to Princeton from Lawrenceville, participated in football and track, and captained the gym team. He was president of Charter Club.

Pat received his MD degree in 1934 at P&S Columbia U., and married Mary Fowler in 1936. From 1936-76, he worked in Summit, N.J., at the Overlook Hospital, and at the Matheny School and Hospital from 1956-96.

He served in the Navy from 1942-46 and retired as lieutenant commander and chief medical officer of the USS Wright in the Pacific.

Pat was a man of honor, authority, integrity, generosity, and wit; a gardener, woodworker, sailor, and maple sugarer in Vermont.

He is survived by his three children, Mary M. Walston, James H. Jr., and Denman F., and eight grandchildren. The Class of '30 extends its deepest sympathy to his family.
