Priscilla Hiers Buy
1933 – 2009
 
Priscilla passed away on December 19, 2009 after a long illness. A lifetime “snowbird”, she was a regular speaker at the Chapman School Library & Museum during its annual winter season Tiki Talk series much to the delight of its audiences. Priscilla was a close friend and collaborator with the late Marjorie Pratt in programs at the Library and will be missed by all who knew her.
 
In 1953, Priscilla circumnavigated the globe as a member of the crew aboard Irving and Exy Johnson’s Yankee Brigantine. In later years, she continued to travel widely filming for National Geographic while touring India and Europe. She spent many years lecturing about her experiences in places throughout the Northeastern USA and here in the Stuart, her winter home for many years. 
 
Priscilla leaves behind her husband John, many family members and friends around the world.
