President and chief executive officer of the Boston-based UST Corp., Mr. Sidell was elected to the Board of Trustees in 1991. Jack Sidell's daughter Stephanie, a member of the Class of 1976, has been UST Corp.'s executive chef for just over ten years. Another daughter, Kathy Sidell Trustman, graduated from the college in 1979, and Mr. Sidell's former wife, Barbara Fagelman Sidell, is a member of the Class of 1954.
"On campus this spring for the first time in many years, Jack Sidell was surprised to find that, other than coeducation, not much had changed. 'There was the same sense of family that Wheaton had 40 years ago,' he says. 'It's a fabulous feeling that I think is unique.'" ("Banking Exec Named to Wheaton Board" by Susan Simpson, Alumnae Magazine, Summer 1991, pp. 13-14)
