Kit Rudge ’58

Published in Mar. 6, 1996, issue

Our dear friend Christopher Rudge died of lung cancer in Nov. 1995. Kit distinguished himself as a scholar and a leader at Scarsdale H.S., Princeton, and Harvard Law School. After completing his education he achieved a notable career capped by the position that he held at the time of his death-chief legal counsel of Interpublic Group, Inc., one of the world's largest publicly held advertising companies. Kit and his family lived for many years in Chappaqua, N.Y., where among many activities, he served as chairman of the board of trustees of the Mount Kisco Presbyterian Church.

At Princeton Kit was a member of Campus Club, and in his senior year, he roomed over the Little Blair Arch with Bob Brown, Hank Bruce, John Dennis, Jim Gilbert, Glen Kelly, Rel McCarroll, Ed Midgely, Gene Shahan, and Tom Shearer.

Kit will be remembered for his intellectual gifts, his contributions to the communities around him, his subtle and quite delightful sense of humor, and for his gentle and kindly ways. The class extends its deep sympathy to his wife, Adrianne, his sons, John and Andrew, his brother, Tony, and his sister, Cathy.
