NORMAN A. LEVY ’28
Norman died at home in Los Angeles Dec. 21, 2005, after a brief illness. He was 98.
Norman was a pioneer in the development of a more humanistic, transactional psychoanalysis in America. He was a charter member of the Los Angeles Psychoanalytic Society and Institute in 1947, but because of his more liberal beliefs about therapeutic interaction, he broke from that institute. In 1950 he and a few like-minded colleagues co-founded the more progressive Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute. He spent the rest of his career as a prominent clinician, training analyst, and teacher who practiced psychiatry and supervised students for almost 70 years, up until his death.
Norman served as a member of California Gov. Earl Warren’s Advisory Committee for Mental Health. He was an emeritus clinical professor at USC School of Medicine, and an emeritus training analyst at the Southern California Psychoanalytic Institute.
Norman was born and raised in Newark, N.J. After graduation from Princeton, he earned a medical degree at Johns Hopkins. He completed training in neurology at Mount Sinai Hospital in New York, and then returned to Johns Hopkins’ Phipps Clinic for psychiatric training. In 1937 he moved to the Michael Reese Hospital in Chicago for psychoanalytic training. After serving in the Air Force during World War II, he spent the rest of his life in Southern California.
He is survived by his wife, Jeanne; daughters Katherine Hall and Mary Lands; son Jim; stepdaughters Sydney Bianchi and Leslie Jordan; a sister, Rhoda Loeser; a brother, Carl Leeds; 12 grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren.

John L. Weinberg ’47
John, who died Aug. 8, 2006, is now a brilliant star in our fabulous constellation of departed classmates.
After combat service as a Marine in the Pacific theater, he rejoined Princeton in 1946, went on to Harvard Business School, and then followed in his illustrious father’s footsteps by joining Goldman Sachs.
He married Sue Ann Gotshal in 1952 and again served as a Marine, this time in Korea.
John’s Goldman Sachs career was marked by extraordinary professional acumen and intense loyalty, both to clients and his firm, which he managed from 1976 to 1990. A full-page New York Times obituary justifies The Economist’s opinion that John was “the foremost banker of the last half century.”
John was also an unpretentious guy who “wore suits off the rack” and “socks that hung too low,” according to his colleague, ex-Treasury Secretary Robert Rubin, who said: “He never thought about reward for himself.”
John also rendered extraordinary service to many charitable and educational institutions. He was honorary chairman of the John L. Weinberg Center for Corporate Governance at the University of Delaware and a Princeton trustee, an honor that, as he told his classmates, he truly cherished. At Princeton, he endowed a chair in economics and business policy.
We celebrate his extraordinary legacy and send our sympathy to Sue Ann and the children.
The Class of 1947
W. REILLY NAIL Jr. ’50
Reilly died July 23, 2006, in Abilene, Texas.
Born in Albany, Texas, Reilly graduated from New Mexico Military Institute and served two years in the Navy. At Princeton he majored in art and archaeology, belonged to Quadrangle Club, and was active in Theatre Intime and club sports.
For many years he was a television producer in New York City. His projects included Gunsmoke and the Masters Golf Tournament. He received the New York City Art Directors Award for his documentary, Magic of the Masters.
Reilly was the founding director of the Old Jail Art Center in Albany. In 1968, he had inherited an old jailhouse building. A decade later he decided to refurbish it as an art museum, unheard of in a rural Texas town of fewer than 2,000. Featuring much of his personal collection that he started with a $10 acquisition in high school, the museum opened in 1980. Since then it has greatly expanded and been accredited by the American Association of Museums.
Reilly supported local theater and was a member of Trinity Episcopal in Albany. At the museum’s 25th anniversary, he was described as the “quintessential American . . . who sees in the arts . . . American life of which he is so fond.”
We share the loss of this exceptional classmate with the Nail family.

THOMAS M. TATUM JR. ’58

Tom’s business life was in financial analysis and portfolio management. He joined Proteus Partners as an investment-portfolio manager and rose to become president of the company, a position he held at his death. He was active in the Episcopal Church, serving as senior warden of churches in Dallas and Pass Christian. He was an avid choral singer, performing twice in Carnegie Hall with the Coast Chorale. Active in alumni affairs, Tom served as president of the Dallas Alumni Association and as class AG chairman for the South.
Those who knew Tom marveled at his remarkable strength following the devastation wrought by Hurricane Katrina in his beloved Pass Christian. Tom maintained his cheerful bearing despite his illness and the loss of his coastal residence.

Frederick C. Mosteller *46
Frederick C. Mosteller, a pioneering giant in the field of statistics, died July 23, 2006, in Falls Church, Va., of sepsis. He was 89.
Many of Mosteller’s works in both theoretical and applied statistics are considered classic texts. His influence also extended into other fields, especially health care and public education.
After receiving two degrees in mathematics from the Carnegie Institute in 1938 and 1939, Mosteller came to Princeton to study with Professor Samuel S. Wilkes. During his time at Princeton, he also met his lifelong collaborator and friend, Professor John W. Tukey *39.
In 1946, after receiving a doctorate in mathematics from Princeton, Mosteller joined the Harvard faculty. By 1951, he was a full professor. And in 1957, when Harvard created a statistics department, Mosteller became its chair. He was also the chair of three other departments during his Harvard tenure. In 1988, he became professor emeritus, but continued with active research and daily office hours until moving to Virginia in 2003.
Mosteller’s honors, offices, and positions held, let alone achievements, are far too numerous to be listed in this limited space. He is survived by two children and one grandchild. His wife, Gale, whom he married in 1941, died in 2001.
