STEPHEN H. WILSON (1944 - 2011)


The Class learned this only month, May 2016, that Steve died on January 10, 2011. The cause was lung cancer.

Steve came to Princeton from University High School in St. Louis, where he was senior class president. He roomed with his high school classmate Mike Milder, along with Phil Nicholson and Dick Hogan. He was a waiter in Commons.

Steve didn’t return to Princeton after his sophomore year, enrolling instead at Antioch College. He went on to become an internationally known expert on the intersection of science, technology, and art. His book Art + Science Now, published in 2010, is considered a major contribution to the field. He served as Professor of Conceptual and Information Arts at San Francisco State University.

He is survived by his wife Kathy and daughter Sophie. The Class extends its condolences to them.
