Terence E. Adderley, age 22 of Bloomfield Hills, MI, died tragically on September 11, 2001 during the terrorist attack on the World Trade Center. He was employed with Fred Alger Management, World Trade Center.
Ted, was born with business in his blood and relished it. His grandfather, William Russell Kelly, founded Kelly Services, a temp agency based in Michigan. By the time Mr. Adderley was 12, he was picking his own stocks. He went to his grandfather's university — Vanderbilt — and joined his grandfather's fraternity, Sigma Chi. In the summers, he worked at Kelly and practiced dry wit. He teased co-workers about trivial mistakes by signing letters to them in a script similar to the company's chief executive — his father, Terence E. Adderley.
At 22, he found Wall Street an easy fit. He shared a preference for French cuffs and collars with his new boss, the veteran Wall Street money manager David Alger.
