Samuel F. Kitchell '43

Sam Kitchell, surrounded by his family, died peacefully at his home in Paradise Valley, AZ, on the evening of September 11, 2006.  Sam led a thoroughly active life, starting as a member of the fast-moving Class of ’43 which scrapped plans for the summer of 1942 in order to attend Amherst so we could graduate in February of 1943 to begin serving our country.  Ten days after graduation, two dozen of us ’43ers, including Sam, were at Columbia Univ.
