Death: May 29, 1988

Son of the clergyman who was rector of this church from 1919 to 1954, Phil graduated from Princeton University cum laude in 1939 and from Yale Law School in 1944. Between 1965 and 1983, he worked for Blank, Rome, Comisky and McCauley, where he specialized in anti-trust suits. He had a deep interest in American history and was known as a tireless researcher who took copious notes. His identical twin, George Bradford Patterson, was killed overseas in 1942 when his ship was blown up. It had been 18 years since a member of the family had served in the military. The twins' grandfather had been Rear Admiral Philip Henry Cooper, who was Superintendant of the Naval Academy in Annapolis from 1894-1898 and Commander of the Asiatic fleet in the Russo-Japanese war.
