Corey Mester

Died: May 1, 1977

Corey Mester has been hard to trace. He left Yale in mid course, after sophomore year. His sophomore roommate in JE, Renny Daly, remembers him as follows: “He seemed a loner — a golfer and rabid Mets fan. He used to listen to the games and often referred to third baseman Rod Kanehl as “Kanehl the schlemiel,” which was the start of my yiddish education. My strongest recollection was seniors across the hall putting a mouse in his bed — he dispatched it with a golf club — perhaps a 7-iron.” Corey died May 1, 1977.
