Thomas Wood Zinsser ’50

Thomas Wood Zinsser ’50 of Sweet Briar, Virginia, died on July 21, 1995.  Tommy attended many reunions prior to that time and was always a fun and kind man to Kroks new and old.  George Lodge remembers his as “a glorious first tenor and a great guy.”  I remember meeting him for the first time at the 40th reunion in 1986 where he would still sing gleefully.  Because of his love for the arts, Tommy set up the Thomas W. Zinsser Memorial Fine Arts Fund, supporting music, art, drama, and movement classes for every North Branch student in Afton, Virginia. [submitted by Steve Dostart]
