A memorial service for Frank D. Mead, a retired stockbroker who was a trustee of St. Paul's School for 25 years, will be held at 11 a.m. tomorrow at Old St. Paul's Episcopal Church, Charles and Saratoga streets.

Mr. Mead, who was 85 and had homes at Roland Park Place and in Naples, Fla., died Jan. 22 at a Naples hospital after a stroke.

He began teaching mathematics and geography at St. Paul's School in 1929 and, in the 1930s, was the athletic director, coached basketball and football teams and introduced lacrosse. He was trustee from 1945 until 1970.

After World War II he went to work for Mead, Miller and Co., an investment banking firm started by his brother, and became a partner. He worked for successor firms, then for Alex. Brown & Sons before retiring in 1975.

A native of Brooklyn, N.Y., who was reared in Lexington, Va., and attended St. Paul's, he was a 1928 graduate of the University of Virginia where he was captain of the basketball team for two years.

He served in the Navy in the Pacific, attaining the rank of lieutenant commander during World War II.

He received St. Paul's Distinguished Alumnus Award in December.

He is survived by his wife, the former Katherine Corning; a stepson, Allan J. Mead of Baltimore; and two grandchildren.

The family suggested contributions to Old St. Paul's Church.
