Nancy Bower, 66, research assistant at Harvard

Nancy Bower, who grew up in Newton and lived for a long time in Lincoln, died last Tuesday in her Cambridge home. She was 66.

Mrs. Bower mixed her academic and family life with grace, her family told the Globe. She married her husband, Joseph Bower, when she was a freshman at Radcliffe. A few years later, when her husband was named to the faculty at the Harvard Business School, she started working as a research assistant. By then, the couple already had two children.

"She had an astonishing ability to manage the people who worked with her," said her husband.
