Obituary Condolences

BALTIMORE -- James M. Huttlinger, 52, of 1502 Park Ave., Baltimore, died of heart failure on Dec. 5, 2006, at the home that he shared with his wife, Lucinda.

Jim was born in Lake Placid on Dec. 28, 1953, and he was the son of the late John B. Huttlinger and Anne Lewis Huttlinger. He attended St. Agnes School in Lake Placid and graduated from

Pius X High School in Saranac Lake in 1971. In high school Jim was active in public speaking, debate, and theatre and he was member of the lacrosse team. He graduated from the College of William and Mary in Williamsburg, Va., in 1975 with a major in history. After college, Jim spent several memorable years in San Francisco. He developed a true love for the city of San Francisco, and he formed some of his closest and most important friendships there.

After returning from San Francisco, Jim enrolled at the University of Maryland in HILS, a dual degree master’s program, where he earned an M.L.S. in Library Science and an master’s in History. It was here that Jim met Lucinda Fitch of Phoenix, a fellow library science student. They were married on Nov. 11, 1989 in Washington, Missouri.

After graduation, Jim was employed as an archivist at the World Bank in Washington, D.C., a position he held until his death. Jim made significant contributions during his years at the World Bank. One notable accomplishment was his involvement in a project to research and compile information for a tribute to former World Bank president Robert S. McNamara. In 2005, during James S. Wolfensohn’s final days as president of the World Bank, Jim assisted Mr.Wolfensohn in compiling and organizing his personal archival information. He thoroughly enjoyed his work and co-workers and he was strongly committed to the World Bank’s goals of promoting worldwide social justice and economic equality. On the day after Jim’s death, the Archive Department at he World Bank was closed in his honor and a special commemorative ceremony was conducted for Lucinda.

Jim and Lucinda spent many satisfying years at their townhouse in Baltimore, which they meticulously restored on their own. It was the perfect venue for entertaining their friends: and for pursuit of their hobbies of music, painting, and literature.

In addition to his wife, Lucinda, Jim is survived by one brother, John B. Huttlinger Jr. and his wife of Karen of Lake Placid; two sisters, Retta Huttlinger of Winooski, and Tierney Beck and her husband Mark of Bennington; one nephew of Lake Placid; two nieces of Bennington, and numerous other relatives and close friends who will miss him greatly.
