John Stuart Jr. ’36

Published in Sept. 10, 1997, issue

Jack died Apr. 25, 1997. He was 85. He was the son of John Stuart '00, a former Princeton trustee. Some eight years ago, he moved from Arizona to Bradenton, Fla.

Jack graduated from the Asheville School. At Princeton he majored in philosophy and was a member of Cottage Club. He worked for the Quaker Oats Co. in Europe and Canada. During his 20-plus years in Canada, he raised prize white-faced Hereford cattle on Old Orchard Farm outside Peterborough, Ont.

Jack was an excellent golfer, and an interest in deep-sea fishing led him to Mexico, the Bahamas, South America and Alaska. He was a member of the Sarasota Yacht Club and the Conquistador Country Club.

Jack is survived by his wife, Wihla L., his children Stephanie, Joan and John III, sisters Joan Richardson and Ellen Poole, and five grandchildren.

We of '36 extend our sympathy to his family. We have lost a good friend.
