William S. Beinecke ’36 BA Dies at Age 103
William Sperry Beinecke, a loyal supporter of Yale, died on April 8, 2018. Yale Law School benefited from his generosity through an endowed scholarship fund, established in 1964. The scholarship was established to enhance the diversity of the student body and funds up to ten students a year.
Beinecke (1914–2018) received his undergraduate degree from Yale University in 1936 and graduated from Columbia Law School in 1940. After serving to the rank of lieutenant commander in the US Navy in World War II, he was a lawyer in New York City and co-founded the firm of Casey, Beinecke & Chase. He became general counsel, president, chairman and CEO of The Sperry and Hutchinson Company, the nation's largest trading stamp company. He was also a founder of the Central Park Conservancy.
