Herbert Frederick Roth ’52

Herbert Frederick Roth ’52 passed away peacefully in Birmingham, Alabama, on April 4. Herb was born on July 20, 1930, in Brooklyn, New York, and graduated from Brooklyn Technical High School. He graduated cum laude from Dartmouth as a government major with distinction. At Dartmouth he was a member of Phi Sigma Kappa, the Camera Club and the Young Republican Club. He was also a program director for the Dartmouth Outing Club. Herb graduated in 1955 from Harvard Law School and spent his legal career in the practice of law in New York City. He served first as a federal judge law clerk, then for several years as an assistant U.S. attorney for the Southern District of New York. In 1960 Herb and Christine Howson were married and he then opted to enter private practice, where he served until his retirement. His legal focus was on civil litigation. Herb and Christine divided their retirement years between New York and Arizona until they moved in 2014 to a retirement community in Birmingham, where son David ’90 and his family live. Herb was a creative and curious individual, always interested in Dartmouth, and friend to many in his class. Everyone has a Herb Roth story and they are always interesting. Christine, David, his wife, Kathleen, and their two children survive Herb. They, and we, will treasure his indomitable, unquenchable spirit.
