Honoring Thomas M. Hyndman, Jr.

It is with great sadness that I report the passing of Thomas M. Hyndman, Jr., long time Presser Foundation Board Member and Officer.  Tom’s tenure on the Presser Board began in 1959, and extended almost six decades.  Even after becoming an emeritus board member he remained interested and involved in board committee activity until very recently.  Tom was 96.  Working with Tom on the Board was a true pleasure.  A great listener, his charm, wit, interest, commitment, and penetrating mind made him an ideal colleague with whom to work toward Presser’s goals.  

I am including with this memorandum a link, that will take you to his obituary.  He was a well-known Philadelphia lawyer, a veteran of World War II, and a supporter of many worthy causes throughout his life.

On behalf of the Presser Foundation, I send our sincere condolences to his family, friends, and associates.  He was, indeed, a fine and rare person and will be greatly missed.


Dr. Jeffrey Cornelius, President
