Published in Jan. 28, 2004, issue

Born in 1924 in Nice, France, John C. Mutch died in Philadelphia Oct. 1, 2003.

After preparing at New York's Collegiate School, J. C. joined the class in 1942, served in the Army Medical Corps in 1944, and graduated with a bachelor's degree in biology in 1946. He earned his medical degree at the U. of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

After his internship, J. C. served in Korea as an Army flight surgeon, becoming personal physician to Pres. Syngman Rhee. He established private practice in obstetrics and gynecology in Moorestown, N.J., from 1957-92, and taught his specialty at the U. of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

At Princeton, J. C. enjoyed playing drums with the marching band. Percussion became a lifelong hobby, along with golf.

He leaves his wife of 51 years, the former Elizabeth Dunn; five children, Deborah Olander, Julia Mutch, John Charles Jr., James Roland, and Andrew; and five grandchildren. To them all, the class extends its sympathy.
