Lije died Feb. 18, 2018.

He came to us from Phillips Exeter. At Princeton he majored in psychology and later earned a Ph.D. from the University of Pennsylvania.

After graduate school he accepted a position at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and taught there for three decades. By our 10th reunion he had married Chantal Mirande and had two sons, Elijah and Nicholas. Along the way he did postdoctoral work at the University of Sussex in England and spent time in Kenya and Hong Kong tending UCSB students. Retiring from academia, he entered our Foreign Service and spent time in the West Indies as a diplomat.

While in Barbados he and his wife discovered scuba diving and fell in love with it. Retiring again, they purchased a home on the Big Island of Hawaii, where Lije described the scuba diving as “extraordinary.”

Lije’s wife, Chantal, predeceased him. To his sons, Elijah and Nicholas, and their families, the class extends its condolences.
