Bill was born April 5, 1929, in Princeton, the son of noted architect Rolf W. Bauhan '14 and of Elizabeth Lathrop Bauhan, daughter of the painter William L. Lathrop, founder of the art colony in Bucks County, Pa.
Coming to us from the Solebury School, Bill majored in history and was a member of Colonial Club. He left in our sophomore year and returned to graduate in 1952. Following three years in Army Intelligence he went on to Oxford, where he met and married Elizabeth Anne Forbes in 1956.
They settled in New Hampshire, and in 1959, Bill bought a publishing house that became William L. Bauhan Inc. He edited and published poetry and local authors. His strong interest in architecture and local history led to his being the first president of the Dublin (N.H.) Historical Society, which he co-founded with John Harris.
Bill's other passion was gardening. He and his wife lived in a house in Dublin built in 1826 on 13 acres with a beautiful walled garden and a barn for the publishing operation. Bill died there March 9, 2006; Elizabeth had died in 1990.
Their children Patrick and Sarah survive, as do Bill's brothers, Hobart and John '55; and his grandsons, Spencer Werth and Renn Bauhan.
