Elwood Carl Weise Jr. ’44

Published in May 16, 2001, issue

Woody died in Trumbull, Conn., on Sept. 29, 2000, four months after being diagnosed with pancreatic cancer. He had been in private dermatology practice there for 45 years.

After Taft School he majored at Princeton in chemistry. He roomed with Bob Miller and Art Dowell and was in Triangle and Campus Club. During WWII he served in the Army and then studied medicine at Jefferson Medical College in Philadelphia, where his father, a member of the Class of '13, had also studied. After studies at NYU medical school, he was called by the Air Force to serve in Korea, where he taught radio communications.

He and his wife, Audrey, whom he married in 1946, enjoyed showing their dogs, keeping as many as six St. Bernards and many Bearded Collies; they frequently took off in their trailer to compete in East Coast dog shows.

With Audrey and their children, Kenneth, Wendy, and Heidi, and six grandchildren, the class shares the loss of a man who cared for his fellow man while also caring for man's best friend.
