Henry I. Hall ’50

Published in Apr. 19, 2006, issue

Harry died of leukemia on Cape Cod Oct. 29, 2005. He was a person with a great outlook on life and was fun to be with. We will sorely miss him.

Though born in Paris, Harry grew up in Morristown, N.J., and graduated from Exeter. At Princeton, he majored in economics, was in the NROTC program, and was a member of Quadrangle, on whose board he served in later years. He ran cross-country and distances in track all four years, lettering in both.

Upon graduation, Harry was commissioned into the Navy. At the outbreak of the Korean conflict, he was transferred to the Pacific, where he took part in the Inchon landing. At one time during his three years in the Navy, he was chief engineer of an LST.

Harry retired in 1992 after 33 years with the Bell system, and continued to live in his boyhood home until he moved to Falmouth, Mass., in 1996. He greatly enjoyed boating and tennis, which he played until a few months before his death.

We share Harry's loss with Marcia, his wife of 50 years; his children, Marky '78, Alice, Henry, Bill, and Julie; and his 10 grandchildren.
