“Mac” died Nov. 20, 2011.
Born in Philadelphia, Mac came to Princeton from Lawrenceville. At Princeton, he was a member of Terrace and graduated with honors in biology. Though he graduated in 1951, he elected to remain a member of ’50.
Mac completed his medical studies at the University of Pennsylvania Medical School in 1956, midway through fitting in a year of graduate-level biology at Cal Tech. Following internship and residency in pathology, he served two years at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology in Washington as an Air Force captain. He then returned to the medical school, joining the faculty in 1961. He became an associate dean in 1969, beginning a 30-year tenure.
After his retirement, Mac enjoyed boating with his family and traveling worldwide with his wife, Blanche, whom he married in 1969.
We extend our sympathy to Blanche; his four children, Paul, Ellen, David, and Suzanne; five grandchildren; and a great-grandson.
