He returned to service as a brigadier general in Korea to study and treat hemorrhagic fever. His next government venture was to Trinidad to study post-streptococcal glomerulonephritis.

Bill died Feb. 17, 2002, in Tryon, N.C., a month short of his 92nd birthday. An inveterate reuner — he cochaired our 30th with Gordy Brown — he attended our 60th even after suffering a heart attack.

An omnivorous reader, he was an amateur bibliographer and collector of rare books and maps. He was a strong supporter of the university library and served on the Council of the Friends of the Library from 1964-70. When he moved to North Carolina in 1982 from Bridgehampton, Long Island, where he had lived for 22 years, he was accompanied by “some 3,000 books (and a rather feeble 14-year-old Labrador).” Bill was dubbed the Englishman in admiration of his elegant attire when he came to Princeton from Exeter. The nickname became English, and then Eng. He was an immensely popular classmate. Surviving are his wife of nearly 48 years, Robin (who called him Willie), four stepchildren, and several grandchildren. To them we offer our sincere sympathies.
