About Paul Robert Carey

Paul Robert Carey, beloved seventh son of the late New York Governor Hugh L. Carey and Helen Owen Carey was a volunteer ski instructor with the ASF in the early 1990’s.  Carey went on to serve as special assistant to President Clinton for Legislative Affairs and also as the 77th Commissioner of U.S. Securities and Exchange Commission.  Former President Clinton spoke of Paul’s “Shining Spirit” which will live on forever. Paul achieved many of his greatest accomplishments in public service while battling cancer and he found great strength in helping others with special needs.  After Paul lost his courageous battle with cancer, his family established the Paul R Carey Ski a Thon at the ASF to keep Paul’s spirit alive at the ASF and Windham Mountain where Paul spent many winters in his young adult life skiing and teaching skiing to people with special needs.
