Perrin H. Long Jr., one of the nation?s best-known brokerage analysts, died here last week at age 70.
"Perrin was an original," said Mr. Lipper. "He had definite views based on the world that he entered the brokerage business in," Mr. Lipper said.
Mr. Long started in the brokerage business in the 1950s as a margin clerk at H.C. Wainwright, where he later rose to partner.
He is survived by his wife, Margro Reppert Long; two children, and two grandchildren.
