Clifford Day Mallory Jr.,

a former president, chairman and trustee of Mystic Seaport, died Thursday, Dec. 7, 2000 at home in Stonington. He was 84.

He died of natural causes, according to his family.

Mr. Mallory's family has been associated with American maritime and yachting heritage since 1816. His father was a prominent yachtsman and ship owner, and Mr. Mallory followed his father's lead as a pioneer in the preservation of U.S. maritime history through his 60-year involvement with Mystic Seaport, first as a trustee then as president and chairman. His great-grandfather started the family's maritime legacy as a sail maker in Mystic.

Born Oct. 13, 1916, in New York City, Mr. Mallory was the son of the late Clifford Day Mallory Sr. and Rebecca Sealy Mallory. He grew up in Greenwich and graduated from Phillips Exeter Academy. He began his career with Mallory Transport Lines, which operates today as Marine Transport Lines.

During World War II, he served as an aide to Adm. William "Bull" Halsey, rising to the rank of lieutenant commander, and was stationed in New Caledonia.

After the war, Mr. Mallory became a professor at the U.S. Merchant Marine Academy at Kings Point, N.Y., then became a ship broker with Addison Atwater. In 1960, with some of his Addison colleagues, he formed a partnership with his own firm, C.D. Mallory & Co.

From his earliest days as a trustee, his love of Eastern Connecticut and his passion for collecting and preservation, combined with a strong sense of heritage, motivated him to be actively involved in Mystic Seaport. His father, the first chairman of what was then called the Marine Historical Association, had helped the three founders establish what was at the time a novel concept - an outdoor museum consisting of a village restoration of buildings, artifacts, vessels and maritime objects that recalled America's maritime story.

Mr. Mallory received numerous awards recognizing his commitment to the preservation of U.S. maritime history. He was on the board of the Connecticut branch of the National Trust for Historic Preservation and the Episcopal Church Foundation.

He is survived by his wife of 57 years, Pauline Cropper Mallory of Stonington; two daughters, Diana Gros-Louis of Bloomington, Ind., and Veronica Stubbs of New York; a son, Charles Mallory of Greenwich; a sister, Barbara Hathaway of Owings Mills, Md.; and seven grandchildren.

A service is scheduled for noon Wednesday, Dec. 13, in Greenmanville Church, Mystic Seaport. Burial is private.

In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Clifford Day Mallory Jr. Memorial Fund at Mystic Seaport, P.O. Box 6000, 75 Greenmanville Ave., Mystic, CT 06355.
