Stanley T. Garber ’30

Published in June 5, 1996, issue

Stan died of a stroke Apr. 2, 1996, at Christ Hospital in Cincinnati, Ohio. He came to Princeton from Walnut Hills H.S., majored in biology, and graduated cum laude. He received his MD at Harvard in 1934. A talented obstetrician and a skilled researcher, he served as chairman of obstetrics from 194667 at Cincinnati General Hospital. He was a founding member of the American College of Obstetrics and Gynecology and of the Assn. of Professors of Obstetrics and Gynecology. He also served at Bethesda Hospital, the Jewish Hospital, and Christ Hospital.

In 1982 he retired from private practice to take care of his wife, Frances Davis Garber, whom he had married in 1935. His soninlaw spoke of how he had combined high standards of integrity with a positive outlook on life. A professorship in obstetrics is being established at the Univ. of Cincinnati College of Medicine, but the gratitude of the thousands of patients, students, and interns is his most enduring memorial.

He is survived by his second wife, Marietta Kelley Garber, whom he married in 1985, two sons, David and Stanley Jr., two daughters, Francie Pepper and Helen, and eight grandchildren, to all of whom we extend deep sympathy. We have lost an outstanding classmate.
