Joseph P. Conway ’54 was a partner at Cahill Gordon & Reindel and a generous benefactor of Columbia Law School. He passed away on March 22, 2009, at the
age of 79.
Conway attended Manhattan College and served as an officer in the U.S. Navy, spending several tours of duty aboard the USS Yorktown.
Conway eventually rose to partner at Cahill Gordon & Reindel. He was “a leading finance practitioner who helped the firm define and distinguish its prominent corporate and securities practice,” members of the firm recalled in an obituary submitted to The New York Times. “We are proud to have been his partners, friends, and colleagues.”
Conway is survived by his wife, Mary Louise, four children, and 11 grandchildren.
