Dedication of Sherrerd Hall, April 4, 2009

April 8, 2009

Sherrerd hall was dedicated on April 4 in honor of the late John J.F. (Jay) Sherrerd '52, one of Princeton's most active and devoted alumni.  Mr. Sherrerd studied economics at Princeton and earned an MBA from the Wharton
School of the University of Pennsylvania. He co-founded Miller, Anderson & Sherrerd, a Philadelphia-based investment management firm that is now part of Morgan Stanley. According to his family, he was fascinated by the application-oriented research conducted by ORFE faculty and students, particularly as it related to finance.  Sherrerd died after a long illness at his home on April 9, 2008.
