COVID-19 Webinar: Fiscal, monetary and health policy responses and implications for the economic outlook
Part 4: Friday, April 16, 2021, at 1:30 p.m. ET
The Griswold Center for Economic Policy Studies (GCEPS) mourns the passing of our dear friend and advisory board member Owen J. Roberts ’56—founder, chairman and CEO of Capital Formation Counselors, Inc. Owen died Sunday, February 7, 2021 at his home in Belleair.
Owen graduated cum laude from Princeton in 1956 with a Bachelor of Science degree in Finance, Economics and Engineering. He played on Princeton’s varsity basketball team which won the Ivy League championship in 1954-1955. Owen joined Princeton’s Department of Economics Advisory Board in 1978, and served as chairman from 1983-1988. He was a charter member of Princeton’s Center for Economic Policy Studies (CEPS), and served as a member of the Center’s Advisory Board from 1991-2021.
Owen’s long-standing commitment to GCEPS, and to Princeton University overall, was deep and he will be sorely missed.
