Edward Scull died July 6, 2008, in St. Augustine, Fla. He was 84.
Ed graduated in 1942 from Haverford School, where he was on the swim team, rowed on the varsity crew, and captained the football team. After serving in the Army Medical Corps, he graduated from Princeton as a premed student in 1946 and received his medical degree from Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia two years later. He then moved to New York City’s Bellevue Hospital with a fellowship in rheumatology (arthritis and rheumatic diseases). Afterward he entered private practice in Hartford, Conn.
When he was 58, Ed retired to Nevis, West Indies, where he spent many years raising rare fruits and orchids and traveling to collect plants and seeds from around the world. In 2001 he and his second wife, Madelon (“Lennie”), moved from Nevis to a retirement village in St. Augustine.
Ed is survived by Lennie; three children from his previous marriage, Suzanne Scull Trzcienski, Elizabeth Long Scull, and Timothy Taylor Scull; two stepchildren, Frank Cunningham and Victoria Cunningham Murphy; four grandchildren; a step-grandson; and two great-grandsons.
