Homer A. Thompson, 7 September 1906 -- 7 May 2000

Homer A. Thompson passed away after a long illness on May 7 in his retirement home at Hightstown, N.J. (near Princeton). He is survived by his widow, Dorothy. He remained active in his academic work until the end of his life, and vacated his office at the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton only two years ago. A memorial service is planned in Princeton sometime later this year. Obituaries have been published in the Philadelphia Inquirer on Thursday, May 11 and in the New York Times on Saturday, May 13. The family has requested that, in lieu of flowers, donations in Homer's memory be sent to:

The Homer Armstrong Thompson Travel Scholarship in Classical Studies
