    Text Rushmore Rowley Valentine, Jr. '51
    Rushmore Rowley Valentine, Jr. '51, a former geologist, was born on February 12, 1927, to Rushmore R. '19, an accountant, and Adelaide Jones Valentine, in Brooklyn, NY. He was a nephew of Harvey H. '25 and Joseph C. Valentine '25. Young Rushmore grew up on Long Island, where he was graduated from Friends Academy in Locust Valley. He followed his father and uncles to College Hill in 1947, after serving in the U.S. Army Air Force during the final months and aftermath of World War II. He joined their fraternity, Delta Upsilon, before leaving the Hill after three semesters at the end of 1948.

    Rushmore Valentine, who later attended Columbia University, "traveled the world in his early career as a geologist," according to his newspaper obituary. He was with Cities Service Petroleum Co. in Bogota, Colombia, when the College heard from him in 1956. He later settled in the Rochester, NY, area, where he was employed for 25 years by Rochester Products, manufacturers of containers and fuel injection systems, until his retirement in 1992.

    The College has only recently learned of Rushmore R. Valentine, Jr.'s death on December 30, 2005. Predeceased by his wife, Nancy B. Valentine, he was survived by two daughters, Beth Quattrociocchi and Susan Schultz, and three grandchildren and a sister.
