Tom was born in Geneva, Switzerland, where his British father Alexander was associated with the League of Nations. Tom prepared for Princeton in England and Andover Academy. He majored in economics and, after Army service, graduated in 1946. He worked for several years for General Electric and then with a large personnel firm before forming his own executive search firm in NYC. He was then residing in Weston, Conn., with his wife, Lillian Foerster, and four children.
In his later years, Tom did not keep in much contact with Princeton, but information has come that he separated from his family and moved to England after the death of his parents there. Subsequently, he moved to the Island of Guernsey and also lived some time in Andorra before returning to Guernsey, where he died of cancer on June 4, 1991.
To his family, and to his brother, Dominic, the class extends its belated and profound sympathy.
