Stu Hulnick died of leukemia on June 14, 1989, at his home in Lafayette Hill, a suburb of Philadelphia.
A nationally known pediatric burn-care specialist and plastic surgeon, Stu was director of the Burn Center of St. Christopher's Hospital for Children, in Philadelphia. In particular, he was known for his writing on reconstructive microsurgery, burn care, and the treatment of children born with cleft palates.
After Princeton, Stu attended the Univ. of Rochester Medical School and interrupted his residence at Strong Memorial Hospital, in Rochester, to serve in the Air Force from 1965 to 1967. In 1970, Stu moved to the Philadelphia area to join Temple Univ.'s Health Sciences Center. He spent two years there before he joined the staff at St. Christopher's. In addition to serving on the hospital's board of managers, he taught plastic surgery at Temple and was on the medical staff of Chestnut Hill Hospital and on the board of trustees of the Burn Foundation of the Delaware Valley.
In his spare time, Stu enjoyed cooking, gardening, making furniture, and needlepoint‚€”a tribute to his microsurgical skills. The class extends its sympathies to his wife, Virginia; his two children, Lauren and Adam; his mother, Martha; and his brother, Arthur '57.
