Carlton P. Frost IV ’44

Carlton P. Frost IV ’44 of Saddle River, New Jersey, passed away on April 3. Penn grew up in Ridgewood, New Jersey, and graduated from Montclair Academy. At Dartmouth he was active in Theta Delta Chi and the tennis, squash, and ski teams. He earned his A.B. in three years and entered WW II as a second lieutenant in the Marine Corps. He was wounded by friendly fire in a bombing run, recovered in Hawaii, and was sent to San Diego for the remainder of his service. He returned to Hanover to earn a degree at Tuck School and then went to work as a draftsman for his uncle, architect Jens Larson. (A sample of Penn’s work is the cupola that sits atop the Bertrand Library at Bucknell University.) He married Ruth Carter in 1947, and they moved to Ho-Ho-Kus, New Jersey, to raise their family. He coached youth football and baseball teams and was active in the Cub Scouts and Boy Scouts. He was a salesman and sales manager for Becton-Dickinson for many years, working with several professional sports teams to promote Sportade, a precursor of Gatorade. A tireless and dedicated member of the class of 1944, he conducted many alumni interviews, attended dozens of fundraisers, and served for years as his class secretary, webmaster, and president. Penn was predeceased by Ruth in 2001. He is survived by daughter Lee and her husband, Marc; son Carlton ’74 and his wife, Susan; grandchildren Sarah, David, and Carlton VI ’10; great-grandson Charles; and companion Betty.
