Recent Obituaries

In 2013, we moved the obituaries from the printed Bowdoin Magazine to this new dedicated online site. While this move marked a significant change, we believe it is one that serves our entire readership. Updated regularly, the improved obituary format better honors our Bowdoin community members and allows additional features that we can’t offer in print, specifically the ability for classmates, families, and friends to post photos and remembrances. We will continue to print a list of recent deaths compiled between issues and full obituaries will appear online here.

Please note: The obituaries posted here began with those from our Fall 2013 issue. We later retroactively posted an additional ten years of our printed obituaries on this site, going back to 2003. Earlier obituaries that were printed in Bowdoin Magazine can be viewed in individual issues in our archives.

The following is a list of the ten most recent obituaries. You can also search by keyword or browse by class year using the grid to the right.
