From.................. TIME 
SEPTEMBER 30,1996 
page 34 

McGEORGE BUNDY, 1919-1996 

Born in Boston, a descendant of the Lowells, he was educated at
Croton, where he displayed his admixture of smoothness and sharpness.
On his college-board exam he refused to answer the essay questions on
summer vacations or favorite pets, instead writing on how inane the
topics were; although an initial grader flunked him, the supervising
grader gave him a perfect score, the same he had got on his other
entrance exams. At Yale [Phi Beta Kappa, Skull and Bones] he wrote a
noted essay, "Is Lenin a Marxist?"; an editorial in the Yale Daily
News calling for abolition of the football team; and a scholarly paper
arguing for America's entry into World War II: "I believe in the
dignity of the individual, in government by law, in respect for the
truth, and in a good God; these beliefs are worth my life and more;
they are not shared by Adolph Hitler. "
