Paul died March 28, 2005, after suffering a heart attack at his Wisconsin vacation home. He was 58.
Paul came to Princeton from Central High School in Phoenix, Ariz. At Princeton he majored in English, was captain of the varsity wrestling team, and ate at Tiger. After Princeton, he received a medical degree from the University of California at San Francisco in 1972, concentrating in infectious diseases. He was chief of infectious disease at the University of Chicago hospitals from 1987-2002. While there, he met and married Hilary Caldwell.
Paul helped in public health projects all over the world. In 2002, he decided to focus full time on international health issues, leaving academia to work at Boston-based Management Sciences for Health. However, the joy of family life persuaded him to return to research and teaching. His family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made to Doctors Without Borders.
To Hilary, son Saul, and Paul's surviving sister, Eleanor Gerst, the class extends its deepest sympathy.
