Calvin S. West, Jr. '54

It is with deep sadness that I write of the death of Calvin S. West, Jr., 77, on Nov. 8, 2009, of a sudden heart attack.

Cal was a close friend with whom I spent many happy times at the Phi Delta house and shared many Amherst Reunions, the last being our 55th. During our Amherst years, we spent four years rowing together on the crew, and together again, we enjoyed exploring the western states in the summer of 1953, camping out most of the way. I knew him as a very kind and compassionate man.
