EXPERIENCED HANDS
Charlie Heimbold, L’60
Sam Pryor, L’53

These days, when not engaged in environmental activism, Pryor is working on a book, “You Make it Happen,” that recounts the career of his father, an executive in the early days of Pan Am Airways who was once presidential campaign manager for Wendell Wilkie. Pryor also chairs the World Rehabilitation Fund, which provides services to disabled people throughout the world.

Klara Sauer, former executive director of the Scenic Hudson, says of him: “Sam has integrity and a quiet sort of force that comes through because people aren’t threatened by him.”
