John Boylston "Bees" Campbell died Feb. 2, 1995, in Malvern, Penn. He prepared at Sanford School. At Princeton, he was a member of the choir and the glee club. After graduation, having chosen engineering as a vocation, he went to Worcester Polytechnic School, where he earned a B.S. in electrical engineering. He worked as a manufacturer’s representative with F. M. Ballou, manufacturers of circuit breakers, switch gear, and other electrical specialties. He also wrote technical articles for Univac, Westinghouse, and the Franklin Institute. He was interested in genealogy, a member of the American Institute of Electrical Engineers, and a member of the Tredyffrin Township Town Watch. He was also a Mason and an Episcopalian. A descendant of Benjamin Shoemaker, the pre-Revolutionary War mayor of Philadelphia, and of Rev. Andreas Rudman, pastor of Gloria Dei (Old Swedes) Church, John was proud of his Scottish ancestry. He was a member of the Scottish Historic and Research Society of Delaware Valley and a co-founder of the Clan Campbell Society (USA), later known as the Clan Campbell Society (North America).
Bees married Jane E. Thorn in I 936. She died in 1986. They had three children, Janet Read, Katharine Ecclston, and David; five grandchildren; and two great-grandchildren.
Bees came faithfully to major and off-year reunions, and his friendship and good humor will be missed. Our sympathy goes to his children.
