One thought on “Geoffrey A. Barnett ’72”

  1. I do not recall Geoffrey Barnett from any of my classes but rather from those times at lunch or dinner in the Ford Dining Hall. Always well-mannered, always circumspectly dressed, as per the mode of the period just before and just after our joining with NHSG. His father, Roger Barnett, was a highly respected clergyman who I was privileged to have as one of my teachers. I regret Geoffrey’s passing,as it appears so untimely, and because the remembrance of him was of a much younger man so full of life. My sincere condolences to his family.
