MARCEL "RICK" DOUBLIER, physician and tireless researcher into a cure for AIDS, has been claimed by complications resulting from the disease whose cure he fought so valiantly to find. He died Sept. 27, 1993. He was 49.
Rick had trained and lived in South Florida since our graduation. He received his M.D. from the Univ. of Miami in 1970, and entered private practice, specializing in internal medicine and infectious diseases there in 1973. He served as chief of Mercy Hospital's division of infectious diseases and was on the board of advisors of Miami's Health Crisis Network. To the end, he was involved in intensive research, through his work with the Community Consortium of AIDS Physicians, in a quest for a cure for the disease he fought on a personal and professional level.
At Princeton, Rick majored in biology and took his meals at Dial Lodge. He sang in the Chapel Choir and was a member of the PreMed Society. Rick entered Princeton from Mountain Lakes (N.J.) H.S., where he captained the tennis and debate teams.
Rick is survived by a brother, Rene '62; a niece, Michele; and a nephew, Rene. In addition, he is survived by two uncles, George and Edward. To each of them, the class offers its deepest sympathy.
