Lawton S. Lamb
January 6, 1933 – February 28, 2022
Ingalls & Snyder mourns the passing of our former colleague, friend and leader Lawton S. Lamb. We at Ingalls who worked at his side are deeply saddened by this loss. Lawton had been with our firm for 54 years, including leading the firm as our Senior Managing Director. We were privileged to have known and worked with this fine gentleman over the years, and believe he embodied the best qualities of client advisors and portfolio managers in our industry. Above all, Lawton was dedicated to the best interests of his clients, who were indeed his friends.

Lawton received a B.A. from Princeton University in 1955 and served as a Lieutenant JG in the U.S. Naval Reserve from 1955-1957. Lawton began his investment career at Citibank, moved to Scudder, Stevens & Clark, and then to Ingalls & Snyder in 1967, where he continued the family legacy of his father, Dana S. Lamb. Lawton served as General Partner of Ingalls from 1970 - 1995, Managing Director from 1996 - 2021, and led the firm as its Senior Managing Director from 2000 - 2011.

Lawton was a skilled pilot, devoted fly fisherman, bird hunter, tennis player and conservationist. He served as Trustee of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association, the Woodrow Wilson Foundation at Princeton, the Middlesex School, the Jackson Laboratory and the Quebec-Labrador Foundation.  

Lawton is survived by his wife of 59 years, Heathcote "Heather" M. Lamb, daughter, Storrs L. Cote, son Dana L. Lamb, and four grandchildren: Alec W. Cote, Pierce L. Cote, Blake S. Cote, and Henry Hannaway Lamb.

We are indebted to Lawton for the legacy he leaves Ingalls & Snyder. But most of all, we will miss his kind and generous spirit, his quick wit, wisdom and friendship. May he rest in peace.
