PARIS, Feb. 9 -- Alan Rutherford Stuyvesant, forty-eight, of New York and Allamuchy, New Jersey, sportsman and game hunter, died today in the Hartmann Clinic, Neuilly, apparently as a result of a skull fracture suffered when he fell on a staircase aboard the liner United States, medical officials reported. The United States Lines' flagship was docking at Le Havre after an eastbound crossing when Mr. Stuyvesant fell. He was taken to Le Havre General Hospital and was transferred to Paris by ambulance Monday night. Mr. Stuyvesant, who was traveling on the liner as a tourist passenger, intended to visit Paris, where he had some property, and then to vacation for two months on the Riviera, according to his friends.
He was graduated from Princeton University in 1928 and attended schools in this country and in France. During World War I, when he was thirteen, he was a civilian motorcycle courier and interpreter in France. After graduation, Mr. Stuyvesant and his brother, the late Lewis Rutherford Stuyvesant, former American Consul General in Calcutta, accompanied Theodore Roosevelt, Jr. on an exploring expedition in Central Asia. Alan and his brother went to France in 1940 as volunteer ambulance drivers, but arrived after France had fallen. In 1941 they joined the Free French forces in French Equatorial Africa. In 1942 Alan was taken prisoner as commander of an American Field Service unit in Libya and was freed in a prisoner exchange in 1943. He later joined Allied forces and parachuted into France to take part in liberation attacks. He was decorated by the French government with the Croix de Guerre.
In 1934 Mr. Stuyvesant served as secretary to Police Commissioner John F. O'Ryan, under the late Mayor F. H. La Guardia. In recent years he had traveled widely, hunting and acting as a judge at dog shows. He was a breeder of Brittany spaniels. Mr. Stuyvesant lived in New York at 127 East 35th Street and had an estate, Deer Park, at Allamuchy. His closest survivor is a nephew, Peter W. R. Stuyvesant.
