Bill grew up in Evanston, Ill., and graduated from Evanston High School. At Princeton he joined Quadrangle and majored in history. He was chairman of the Nassau Herald and active in the Pre-Med Society. He earned a medical degree and did his internship at Northwestern Medical School, after which he did his psychiatric residency and was selected chief resident in psychiatry at Cincinnati Medical School.

Called to the Army in 1968, Bill served two years at Fort Bliss, Texas. Released in 1970, he opened his private psychiatry practice in Palo Alto, and later in nearby Sunnyvale and Mountain View, Calif. He also served as chief of the department of psychiatry for the El Camino Hospital complex in those three communities. 

Retiring in 2000, Bill remained in Northern California until 2013, when he moved to Eugene, Ore., to be near two of his children and their families. He loved the outdoors, especially hiking, camping, and birding. He also enjoyed traveling, visiting at least five continents. He was active in the Sierra Club and later in BOGS (Birds of Oregon and General Science) in Eugene. 

Bill died May 27, 2021, of pneumonia (non-COVID) and is survived by his three children and eight grandchildren, to whom we send our condolences.
