In Memory

Bill died on June 10 after a brief illness. He came to Amherst after graduating from Amherst High. As an undergraduate, Bill was a whirlwind of campus activities. He was a member of Chi Psi fraternity and a psychology major. The latter qualified to satisfy his academic requirement. Bill led an active social life, dating girls from both Smith and Mount Holyoke. Since he was a resident of the town of Amherst, Bill had access to “wheels,” with which he was generous in giving rides to classmates seeking rides to the ladies’ colleges. Bill was on the track team and was the director and drum major for the student band, on the Olio staff and vice chairman of The Student. After college, Bill spent his working years in the computer industry in California before living a quiet life in the Seattle suburbs.
