Guy graduated from Gilman. At Princeton he majored in history, ate at Ivy, played lacrosse, was on the freshman steering committee, and was a member of St. Paul’s Society and the Student Christian Association, a Chapel deacon, and a representative for the Intercollegiate Student Christian Movement. He roomed with Tom Schmidt.

After Army service in Germany Guy earned a master’s degree in 1959 and a Ph.D. in 1964 in German literature at Hopkins, preparing him to teach at Clark University, Penn, and Old Dominion University. In the 1980s he turned to community service in his hometown, teaching veterans to write at the Baltimore Community College and inmates at the city jail. 

More recently Guy turned to work for the environment at Wyman Park, near his home in the Stone Hill neighborhood of Baltimore, and with the Jones Falls Watershed Association. 

Guy died Jan. 7, 2021. He is survived by his wife, Pamela; and his daughters, Virginia Iglehart ’80 and Elisabeth; and five grandchildren, including Alice Iglehart ’10. To them the class offers condolences, with a salute to Guy for his service to our country and to the many grateful people whom he helped.
