Dave died on Nov. 13, 1999, after a long illness that curtailed his brilliant medical career. The son of two doctors, he came to Princeton from the John Burroughs School, in Clayton, Mo., majored in psychology, and graduated Phi Beta Kappa and Sigma XI, with highest honors.
He received his master's from Yale and his MD from Washington U. in St. Louis. After WWII service as a capt. with the Army Medical Corps in Africa and Germany, he completed his residency training at Washington U. and was a research fellow at Cornell medical school in New York.
He ascended the academic ladder, again at Washington U. and then at the U. of Wisconsin-Madison, where he was professor and chair (1971-80) of the department of medicine. He later became adjunct professor in the department of psychology at the U. of Delaware until he retired in 1994. David was a pioneer in psychosomatic medicine, and his research in this area has been published widely in scientific journals.
Frances, his wife of 56 years, daughters Norma and Mary, son Andrew, and eight grandchildren survive him. The class wishes to share their pride in his many remarkable accomplishments and their sorrow at his loss.
