A native of Washington, D.C., Bill spent part of his childhood in Italy. At St. Albans School he edited the literary magazine and yearbook and played in the orchestra. At Princeton he concentrated in the Program in East Asian Studies, joined Colonial Club, played in the orchestra and marching band, and belonged to the Pre-Med Society.
After Princeton he graduated from Vanderbilt Medical School, then entered the Epidemic Intelligence Service at the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention as an officer in the U.S. Public Health Service. He was on the faculty of the University of Texas Southwestern Medical Center in Dallas for 11 years, then in the private practice of medicine and infectious disease in Dallas and Leesburg, Va. For 20 years he volunteered at the Loudoun County (Va.) Health Department.
With his wife of 52 years, Martha Scott Baine, Bill lived in Waterford, Va. He had a lifelong love of languages and was versed in Italian, Russian, and Chinese. His reunion book contributions reveal his gifts for poetry and parody.
The class extends its heartfelt condolences to Martha and son Britton.
