Christina Slawson Siegel ’90

Christina Slawson Siegel ’90, April 1, 2013, in Los Angeles. Christina earned a BA in philosophy and political science, working with Peter Steinberger [political science 1977–] as a thesis adviser. She credited him as one of the influential people in her life. She graduated from Reed Phi Beta Kappa and also was a Rhodes Scholar finalist. “She was a terrific student,” says Steinberger. Christina went on to earn a JD from Harvard and returned to her hometown of Los Angeles, where she practiced health care law for 10 years, specializing in mergers, acquisitions, and regulatory work. She married Mark Siegel and left her legal practice in order to raise their twin daughters. During the five years she enjoyed as a mother, she found time to serve on the board of directors for the Eisner Pediatric Medical Center and the Center for Early Education and to be a member of the Blue Ribbon. Christina is remembered for her wit, intelligence, beauty, unsurpassed integrity, and kindness. “Her sudden, unexpected, and unexplained passing leaves a painful void in the lives of all who knew her.” Survivors include her husband, daughters Elizabeth and Sarah, and her mother and brother.
