Tommy, of Upper Nyack, N.Y., died Nov. 18, 2002. He was 91. He was the father of the class baby of '33.

Tommy was an accomplished athlete both at Phillips Andover Academy, where he three-lettered in football, basketball, and baseball, and at Princeton. Later at Rockland Country Club he was golf champion in 1934 and 1936. He was a founding member of the Upper Nyack Field Club and a summer resident of Hulett's Landing, N.Y., on Lake George.

After graduation he began his lifelong employment with the Northwestern Mutual Life Insurance Co. Before retiring in 1976 he sold nearly $9 million in policy coverage. Northwestern Mutual Life was known as the "quiet company." Tommy was not.

He is survived by his wife, Betty Carder; his daughter, Betsey Growney; and two sons, Tom '57 and Jim '66. He is predeceased by the mother of his three children, Jane Waterman Mettler. The class extends its deepest sympathy to the large family of this vigorous, loyal classmate.
