Princeton’s Class of ’33

Touching piece in today’s NY Times about Princeton’s class of ’33, with excerpts from its class diarist. As you might imagine there are fewer of his classmates left every day:

And then there is this:

“Ed Bartlett is in fine form — he walks every day, shoots his age in golf “from the ladies’ tees.” Time goes by as though telephone poles were a picket fence.”
