Published in Oct. 24, 1990, issue

WE HAVE ONLY recently learned of Carl's death in 1988. He had prepared for college at Lawrenceville. At Princeton he played varsity water polo. His roommates were Fred Reynolds and Marion Raney.

He left Princeton in 1928 and, after a period on a coffee farm in Colombia, went to the Univ. of Pittsburgh, where he received a B.S. in chemistry in 1931. He was for seven years with Standard Products and then became assistant to the president of Loud Gold Mines, then in 1941 went with Rite Way products in Memphis. During the war he was a sergeant in the Chemical warfare Service, receiving citations for his service in England, France, and the Philippines. He had been in a nursing home, and his wife is deceased.
