Cate Edwards '04 to Marry Trevor Upham '03

By Suchi Mandavilli '14

A few days before Elizabeth Edwards died, her daughter Cate Edwards ’04 told her the good news of her engagement to longtime boyfriend Trevor Upham ’03. Upham, a physician, and Edwards, an anti-discrimination lawyer, started dating at Princeton and continued their relationship after graduation.

Elizabeth Edwards died Tuesday after a six-year battle with breast cancer. At Elizabeth Edwards’ funeral service Saturday, Cate delivered a eulogy in which she called her mother a “lighthouse to all,” and Upham acted as a pallbearer.

The couple got engaged after spending Thanksgiving weekend in the Edwards’ home in Chapel Hill, N.C. According to People’s report of a close friend, “Elizabeth was thrilled.”

How is this relevant? I bet Princeton alumni get married to each other all the time.

It's "relevant" because Cate is the daughter of Sen. John Edwards.

Cate Edwards looks awfully old for '04. 1904, perhaps?
