Quotes from Biographical Sources

The Reverend Thomas Petigru Fraser, III died on Friday, June 4, as a result of an accidental fall from his apartment terrace in Paterson, N. J., where he had recently moved to take up duties as pastor of the St. Augustine Presbyterian Church. He had previously been pastor of the Trinity Presbyterian Church in Baltimore, his family home.

Tom came to Dartmouth from Delaware State High School, majored in history, and was active in Dartmouth Christian Union activities. He obtained his divinity degree from Union Theological Seminary and a Master of Sacred Theology from Harvard in 1957. He was ordained in New York and served as associate minister of St. Augustine Presbyterian Church in the Bronx for two years.

Tom was active in the Black Ministerial Alliance of Baltimore and was highly regarded for his effective pastoral leadership. The Class mourns its loss and extends its sympathy to his parents, his son, and his sisters.
