Gus graduated from Episcopal High in Alexandria, Va. At Princeton he joined Tower and majored in chemistry. He was involved in Theatre Intime, the Washington Club, the Chemistry Club, and the stage crew of Triangle (read his hilarious account in his essay for The Book of Our History). He roomed with Bill Dunn, Ed McCarthy, and Henry Donahoe.

After service in the Coast Guard, Gus enrolled at Columbia medical school and got his degree in 1959 with a Meierhof Prize in Pathology. He was chief of pathology from 1963 to 1999 and medical lab director at the Jackson (Tenn.) Pathology Group. He performed volunteer and honorary work in national medical organizations.

Gus died Feb. 7, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Beverlye; and his children, Elizabeth, Pamela, Augustus III, Charles, and Robert, to whom the class sends its best, with a thanks for Gus’ military service to our country.
