CONRAD--Robert, 90, died in Ann Arbor, MI on February 18. He was born in New York City, received undergraduate and law degrees from New York University, and was a proud veteran of World War II, serving in the deception unit known as the "Ghost Army". He practiced law in New York City for nearly 60 years, served as president of the City Club of New York, and was active in Democratic Party politics at the local, state and national levels. He is survived by Esther, his beloved wife of 60 years, his sister-in-law Mildred Nollman of Foxborough, MA, sons Dan of San Francisco and Fred of Ann Arbor, their wives Sarah Wilcox and Betsy Brooks, grandchildren Paul, Ted, Allison, and Jeffrey, and eight nieces and nephews and their families. Bob loved music, ballet, and the theater; he was an enthusiastic and generous host, and loved a party. He and Esther were world travelers, always looking forward to their next trip. He was loved and respected by the many friends he made throughout his life. His friends and family will miss him always. Memorial contributions may be sent to Peoples' Symphony Concerts; Suite 703; 121 West 27th Street; New York, NY 10001.
