Archibald Johnston “Arch” Kingsley, died March 17, 2015 at age eighty-seven. He was a Joint-Master of the Middleburg Hunt (VA) from 1972 to 1977. He lived life fully: boxing, foxhunting, racing over fences, and piloting commercially both in the air and on the water—the latter into his eighties.
The Middleburg Hunt will dedicated the running of their Point-to-Point Races on April 26, 2015 to Arch Kingsley’s memory, and plans are underway for a memorial tailgate.
Arch was born in Bethlehem, Pennsylvania on July 11, 1927 to parents George and Elizabeth Kingsley. At the age of seven he was enrolled at The Haverford School in Haverford, Pennsylvania, becoming the youngest boarding student in the school’s history. Every summer Arch went to camp at Culver Academy on Lake Maxinkuckee, Indiana, eventually becoming a Golden Gloves boxer. He went on to graduate high school at Governor Dummer Academy in Newbury, Massachusetts.To read more, a subscription is required. Log in or click here to subscribe.
