Sent to Italy in 1944, Marshall participated in the Battle of Anzio and in the Allied advance into southern France and the push through Alsace, across the Rhine and through the heart of Germany into Austria. His responsibilities were to examine captured documents and maps, check translations, interrogate prisoners and become an expert on German forces, weaponry and equipment. He interviewed Field Marshal Erwin Rommel’s widow at length and took possession of the general’s personal papers, ultimately breaking the story of the legendary commander’s murder. He had many conversations with high-ranking German officers, including Hans Speidel, Rommel’s chief of staff in Norway. In 1994, Marshall published Discovering the Rommel Murder: The Life and Death of the Desert Fox (Stackpole Books). In 1998, he published A Ramble Through My War: Anzio and Other Joys (Louisiana State University Press).

Henry Piotr (Hank) Ozimek, chemical engineer, Brick, N.J., on October 9, 2002. Ozimek was born in New York City to Polish immigrants. He began elementary school with practically no knowledge of English, but soon showed his ability to learn and graduated as a superior student. His admission to the College was paid for with a scholarship and made such an indelible mark on Ozimek that he was forever expressing his gratitude and admiration. Ozimek earned a second undergraduate degree, also in 1938, from the Engineering School, as well as a master’s from the Engineering School in 1939. After graduation, he joined the staff at Merck, and after two years, he moved to Pfizer International, where he remained for 33 years, retiring in 1982 as a project manager. During World War II, Ozimek participated in the production of penicillin for the armed services. His wife of 54 years, the former Janice Mayfield, describes his attitude as that of a person who loved his work. She describes the people at Pfizer as having “a rather unspoken attitude of Peace Corp workers. They went into many less developed countries, raised the standard of living by creating jobs, teaching good technologies and improving health care levels. It was exiting for all of us.” During Ozimek’s years at Pfizer, before returning to Brick, N.J., in 1982, the family lived in Rome, Japan and Mexico City. Ozimek is survived by his wife; sons, Peter and James; daughters, Elena Madsen and Eve Finestein; brothers, Lewis and Richard; 10 grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.

Upon returning to the United States, Schwartz worked as an economist for the Israeli government from 1949–84. He was principally responsible for administering the first loan to Israel from the United States, $135 million from the United States Eximbank. In 1951, he was sent to Israel to set up the Israeli government office, administering American grants-in-aid. In 1952, he became chief economist for the Finance Ministry of Israel in New York and continued his work obtaining loans for Israel. He also worked with private corporations, such as McDonald Douglas and Boeing, to develop Israel’s fledgling industries. Schwartz drafted much of the prospectus for the first Israel Bond Drive. From 1961–69, he was chief economist for the Finance Ministry and became head of the New York office of the Dead Sea Works, Inc., which sold potash extracted from the Dead Sea to the United States and Mexico as well as did research on the use of potash in industry, desalination and plastics. Schwartz retired in 1984. He endured Parkinson’s disease for 20 years. He and his wife of 58 years, Anita ’46 GSAS, lived in Battery Park City until September 11, 2001.

Swartz developed businesses in charter fishing, the Vienna Christmas Tree Farm, and the Middle Bass Campground/Resort. Though he was afraid of heights, he was a pilot and member of the American Pilots Association. He flew his plane to South America, to Chelan and to many other places, crossing those things off his personal to-do list. Swartz also enjoyed power and sail boating, and was a member of the Mimico Cruising Club in Entoipoke, Canada. He sailed from Ohio to Canada, and from Canada to Florida, and made similar trips with his powerboat. He enjoyed participating in many indoor and outdoor sports — handball, racquetball, snow- and water-skiing, scuba and snorkeling, jet skiing, bicycling, and swimming. In his youth, he was a boxer, and Golden Glove champion in the Cleveland area, and was a catcher, as was his father, in summer baseball programs in Bellevue. Swartz owned a condominium in Toronto, where he was visiting when he passed away. His main home was eight acres on Middle Bass Island, where he lived for almost 40 years. Swartz couldn’t stay put for too long and traveled widely. He had a hangar/ condo with his airplane in Streetsboro, Ohio, where he owned and operated his veterinary practice until several years ago, when he “retired.” He was recently involved with management of St. Hazard’s Resort on Middle Bass, a realization of a longtime dream. Many years ago, he had purchased 33 acres and developed it into Middle Bass Resort & Campground; he would charter fish from there. A letter that CCT received from Swartz’s sister, Gloria Heisler said: “Ted’s best friend throughout his life was Bo (Ward) Cunningham ’59, and they certainly had a fondness for Columbia. Bo served as Ted’s best man in October, and just two months later, as one of his pall bearers. It’s been quite a journey for those two! Forever friends!” Swartz’s survivors include his wife, Helena Cecylia (Kadlubowska) Krajewski Swartz, whom he married on October 12; his former wife, Peggy (Shannon) Swartz; son, Scot; daughter, Kathy Millwood, stepchildren, Tomasz (Tomek) and Dorota Krajewski; brother, Roger, and his wife, Mary Lou and their two sons; sister, Gloria Heisler, and her husband, Richard, and their sons and daughter; and three grandchildren.

He warmed up the audience before Fear of Scaffolding and participated in several comedy cabarets before embarking on a career as a stand-up comic and actor. He worked the New York City clubs with Rosie O’Donnell and Jackie Martling, then moved to L.A., where he started his television work with Maureen “Marcia Brady” McCormick on Teen Angel and also worked on another series, The Show. Feinman’s “day job” was being a private investigator (his “favorite” job, second only to his typing internship with Miss Dee). According to a note that CCT received from his wife, Sylvia, “[David’s] association with Columbia was a source of great pride and happiness for him … We talked often about socio-economic reality and about how fortunate he felt to have been given the opportunities he had, to follow his dreams and to be a classically educated man following a creative, non-mainstream career … He spoke of how many of his contemporaries in stand-up comedy studied Kissinger’s policies but few of them had the chance, as he did, to have attended a seminar taught by Kissinger. This was, indeed, a source of pride and happiness to my husband.” Feinman is survived by his wife; parents, Judith and Bernard; brothers, Steven, Philip and Paul; and sister, Fran Beilinson. Please visit Feinman’s website, “Isn’t Life Davelicious,” to remember him ( Donations to the College Fund may be made in his honor.
