Princeton student Alexander Adam dies


Alexander Adam

Princeton NJ — Princeton undergraduate Alexander Adam died of cancer Jan. 25 at his family’s home in New York City. He was 23.

Adam graduated from the Trinity School in New York, where he also starred in many plays. He was a two-time winner of the national Scholastic Art and Writing Awards for humor, administered by the Alliance for Young Artists and Writers.

Adam is survived by his father Laszlo, a 1973 Princeton graduate, and his mother Winky; and his brothers Nick, a Princeton junior, and Dash. A memorial service was held Feb. 2 in New York. In lieu of flowers, donations may be made to the Memorial Sloan-Kettering Cancer Center-Pediatric Division.

A campus memorial service is being planned for 4:30 p.m. Monday, Feb. 19, in the University Chapel. A reception will follow.

Adam entered Princeton as a member of the class of 2007 and was a resident of Rockefeller College. His academic interests focused on theater and creative writing, and he was active in the campus theater community. Adam performed in productions with the Princeton Shakespeare Company, Theatre Intime and the Program in Theater and Dance, including “Titus Andronicus,” “Rumors,” “Business Lunch at the Russian Tea Room” and “Playing in the Dark.”
