Marty talks about the passing of Edward Stern, retired Judge of the Superior Court
Edward Stern grew up in the Bronx and, despite the proximity of Yankee Stadium, was a life-long Giants fan. He graduated from Dewitt Clinton High School (the Bronx High School of Science hadn’t been built yet) and completed all but one semester at New York University before joining the Army Air Corps in World War II, during which he flew 38 combat missions as a Lead Navigator on B-24s in the Pacific. Upon his return, he attended Harvard Law School (which considered his years of getting shot at while in the service the equivalent of his one missing semester), graduating with Harvard Law’s first post-war class in 1945.
He passed away on March 20, 2017, at the age of 96.
