Archer B. Laurence ’31

Published in June 12, 1991, issue

ON CHRIMMAS, WE LOST another classmate. Archer Laurence died Dec. 25, 1990, in his 83rd year, after a long and courageous struggle with cancer. He was a member of the large contingent of classmates who joined us from the Hun School. His wife, Sally, predeceased him. They had no children. For many years Arch lived in the Countryside section of Summit, NJ., where he had been active in local affairs; among other positions, he had been president of the Countryside Civic Assn., commander of the Civil Defense organization, and a member of the Planning Board and Urban Renewal Commission. Before he retired, he was president of the Laurence Belting Co. in N.Y. and treasurer of die Nad. Industrial Leather Assn. Arch was active in Princeton's Annual Giving campaigns. He was a loyal classmate; but to his great grief and frustration, his protracted and serious illness prevented him from attending our recent reunions. We mourn the loss of this fine citizen, warm friend, and loyal Princetonian.
