In Memory

Fred was born March 6, 1935, making him easily the youngest member of our class. He prepped at Booker T. Washington High School in Atlanta. Both his parents were doctors. As an undergraduate, Fred was a member of Phi Psi and majored in political science. He was actively involved in many extracurricular activities around the campus, starting right out as manager of our freshmen soccer team. Fred was involved with the Christian Association, Debating Council, Managerial Association, Pre-Law Club and radio station WAMF. He was on the executive committee of the Rotherwas Society.

After Amherst, Fred went to Northwestern, where he received a law degree in 1958. He then worked as an attorney in Chicago for several companies including Borg-Warner from 1970 to 77. Fred was chair of the Hyde Park Co-op Society in Chicago from 1969 to 1971.

In the early ’80s, Fred returned to Atlanta, where he spent the rest of his life. I last talked to him in February 1999, when he indicated he was struggling with health issues. Fred died March 19, 2004.
