Our friend and classmate Dr. Jeffrey L. Bishop died on November 13, 1987, when he was struck by a car while jogging near his home.
Jeff came to Princeton from Stuyvesant High School in NYC. At Princeton, he majored in physics and won the Kusura Memorial Prize for Physics. Jeff did his graduate work at the University of Chicago, where he obtained his Ph.D. He then spent two years at the Canadian Institute for Theoretical Astrophysics, in Toronto. He returned to NYC in the summer of 1987 and took a position as a lecturer in astronomy at Columbia University.
Those of us who knew Jeff after he returned to NYC know that he found happiness with his beloved wife, Ellen Simon, and son, Andrew. To them, his parents Muriel and Herb Simons and Tom and Helen Bishop, his sister Cathy, and his stepsisters Kari Kling and Linda McNeely, the class extends its deepest sympathy.
