In Remembrance
Rex Becker
Rex Becker, BArch ’34, MArch ’35, a prolific architect in the St. Louis area, died Friday, May 29, 2009.

In Becker’s 50-year career, he designed more than 300 buildings, including 150 churches. Some of his projects included the old Lutheran Hospital, schools for the Ritenour School District, Ladue City Hall, Webster Groves fire and police department headquarters, the library and tower at Concordia Seminary in Clayton, and buildings at Missouri University of Science and Technology.

He served as president of the local chapter of the American Institute of Architects St. Louis in 1956 and as national treasurer from 1969 to 1971. Becker persuaded the St. Louis chapter to offer scholarships that now have helped more than 700 architects.

For 27 years, Becker was a member of Ladue’s Architectural Review Committee. In 1995, Washington University presented him with its Distinguished Alumni Award.

David Felix
David Felix, professor emeritus of economics at the University, died Saturday, June 13, 2009.

Before beginning his career in academia, Felix served as lieutenant in the Pacific during World War II. He later went on to become a professor of economics at Wayne State University in Detroit and then at Washington University in 1964. He retired as professor emeritus of economics in 1988.

His research interests included economic development, history, and international trade and finance. Felix served as an economic consultant to the United Nations and the International Monetary Fund. He had research appointments at Harvard University; the University of Sussex, England; and the London School of Economics. He received fellowships from the Fulbright, Rockefeller, and Ford foundations.

Felix’s grandson, Seth M. Bloom, is pursuing an MD/PhD at Washington University.

Robert F. Furchgott
Robert F. Furchgott, DSc ’01, former faculty member at the School of Medicine and a Nobel Prize winner, died Tuesday, May 19, 2009.

Furchgott was one of three American scientists awarded the 1998 Nobel Prize for Physiology or Medicine for the discovery that nitric oxide transmits signals within the human body. This led to several breakthroughs, including a new treatment for newborns with dangerously high blood pressure in their lungs and drugs for the treatment of shock.

He held teaching positions at Cornell University and Washington University and conducted research at both schools, before accepting the post of chairman of the department of pharmacology at The State University of New York in Brooklyn in 1956. Furchgott was head of that department until stepping down in 1983 and continued as a professor until retiring in 1989.

Victor Hermelin
Victor Hermelin, BSChE ’36, founder of KV Pharmaceutical Co., died Monday, May 11, 2009.

While attending Washington University, Hermelin worked as a lab assistant for Carl Cori, a Nobel Prize-winning professor. Soon after graduation, Hermelin invented the skinless frankfurter, which saved millions of dollars for Swift & Co., where he worked.

In 1942, he and a friend started their own drug-making company, KV Pharmaceutical Co., in St. Louis. Hermelin went on to hold nearly 100 patents, including one that allowed pharmaceuticals to be produced in the now familiar timed-release form.

He developed a process for producing multivitamins called spheroids in 1944. The Department of Defense used that medical breakthrough in World War II to help prevent night blindness for soldiers in the Pacific Rim. Due to Hermelin’s help with this, government officials allowed him to become one of the first civilians to ride on an atomic submarine.

Hermelin received an Alumni Achievement Award from the School of Engineering & Applied Science at Washington University in 2009.

Hortense “Horty” Kuehner
Hortense “Horty” Kuehner, AB ’40, a longtime, generous supporter of the University, died Friday, April 10, 2009.

After graduation, Kuehner worked in the University’s War Training Office. The University was one of many institutions across the nation under contract with the U.S. Office of Education to train workers for the defense industry.

Over the years, Kuehner and her husband, Howard A. Kuehner, BSBA ’40, have been generous supporters of the University. In memory of Mrs. Kuehner’s father, they endowed a chair in finance, the Harry C. Hartkopf Professorship in Econometrics and Statistics, at the Olin Business School in 1995.

The couple established the Kerry S. Kuehner Endowed Scholarship Fund at the College of Art in memory of their daughter in 2005. Kerry received an MBA from the University in 1987 and died in 2005 after a brief illness.

The Kuehners also established two more endowed scholarships at the business school in honor of their daughter and their son, Kim Kuehner, MBA ’77. In addition, they sponsor an annual scholarship in business. Horty Kuehner was a strong supporter of the Humane Society of Missouri.

I.E. Millstone
I.E. Millstone, BS ’27, a prominent St. Louis businessman and philanthropist, died Saturday, May 16, 2009.

He began his career in business at the United Hebrew Temple, where as a boy he established a coat-checking service. Later, Millstone established himself as a major builder of roads and public facilities both in the St. Louis region and in Israel.

Beginning in 1930 and thriving over the next eight decades, his business, Millstone Construction, was engaged in almost every major project of consequence in St. Louis, from paving runways at Lambert Field to building the double-decked highways that shot U.S. 40–64 through downtown; from the erection of the graceful apartment towers along Skinker Boulevard to construction of the old Busch Stadium and Northwest Plaza. Many of Millstone’s projects, such as Milles Fountain near Union Station, have stood the test of time.

In the 1950s, Millstone donated the grounds for the Jewish Community Center in St. Louis, which was named in his honor.

Millstone had an international impact, as well. Not long after the establishment of the state of Israel in 1948, he was called upon to help build the infrastructure of the new Jewish state. He built housing for refugees and led that nation in its public housing efforts.

At Washington University, dozens of students attend, and have attended, on Millstone grants. His foundation has contributed millions to the Mathews-Dickey Boys’ and Girls’ Clubs, the United Way, the Boy and Girl Scouts, Operation Food Search, Saint Louis University, the Saint Louis Symphony, the American Cancer Society, and many other charities.

A life member of the Board of Trustees of the University, Millstone received an honorary degree in 1994.

Powell Niland
Powell Niland, professor emeritus of management at the University, died Sunday, April 19, 2009.

Niland came to the University in 1957 from Harvard Business School, where he earned a doctorate and taught for six years.

Robert L. Virgil, Olin Business School emeritus dean and professor, was among Niland’s first students at the University. He remembers Niland fondly as a teacher, mentor, and friend.

“Powell’s contribution to the Olin School was enormous,” says Virgil. “He was very influential in the shaping of the MBA program. Powell’s strengths were teaching and research in the areas of manufacturing, production, and operations management. This always has been a strong, even distinctive, part of the Olin program. It is today. This special strength started with Powell and traces to him.”

Niland retired in 1989.

Ronald E. Schuchardt
Ronald E. Schuchardt, former member of the University Campus Police Department, died Tuesday, March 17, 2009.

Schuchardt served as a marine in the Korean War. He worked for the City of St. Louis Police Department before joining the Washington University Campus Police Department in 1970. He retired as captain in 1996.

In the mid-1970s, he managed a boys’ soccer team in St. Louis. Under his guidance, the team went on to win two U.S. titles, one in Washington, D.C., and one in Omaha.

Four of Schuchardt’s children are associated with the University. Steven works in Maintenance Operations, and Robert, Jeffrey, and Craig are all former University staff members.

Robert Sparks
Robert Sparks, former director of the Biological Transport Laboratory at the University, died Saturday, March 21, 2009.

Sparks served in the Army Chemical Center in Edgewood, Maryland, during the Korean War. After the war, he worked for Exxon for three years before joining the faculty at Case Western Reserve University.

He came to Washington University in 1972 and became director of the Biological Transport Laboratory. In 1994, he left the University and founded Particle and Coating Technologies, Inc., a St. Louis–based research and development company.

A lifelong music lover and talented tenor, he sang with the Handel Choir in Baltimore, as well as the Cleveland Orchestra and the Saint Louis Symphony Orchestra Chorus.

Marvin Stein
Marvin Stein, MD ’49, a pioneer in the investigation of the brain, behavior, and the immune system, died Saturday, May 16, 2009.

After serving in the U.S. Air Force as a flight cameraman, he completed both his internship and psychiatric residency at Washington University. Stein then continued his training through the National Institute of Mental Health (NIMH) Post Doctoral Fellowship at the University of Pittsburgh, where he began to focus on psychosomatic medicine.

He also graduated from the Philadelphia Psychoanalytic Institute in 1959 while on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

In 1963, Stein moved to Cornell University Medical College before joining the faculty of The State University of New York, Downstate Medical School in Brooklyn in 1966. He became the Esther and Joseph Klingenstein Professor and Chair of Psychiatry at Mount Sinai School of Medicine in 1974 and held that post until his retirement in 1994.

He held several influential positions in his lifetime, including president of the American Psychosomatic Society, chairman of the medical board of the Mount Sinai Hospital, chair of the research council of the American Psychiatric Association, chair of the benevolent medicine study section of the NIMH, and chair of the National Advisory Committee on AIDS of the NIMH.

Joyce Trebilcot

Trebilcot also was a founding member of the Society for Women in Philosophy and Hypatia: A Journal of Feminist Philosophy, and she served for many years on the editorial boards of Hypatia, Social Theory and Practice, and the Journal of Social Philosophy.

L. Glen Zahnd
L. Glen Zahnd, JD ’58, a prominent Missouri judge, died Friday, June 5, 2009.

Interested and active in politics, he was the Andrew County coordinator for the campaigns of Gov. Kit Bond in 1972, 1976, and 1980, and of Gov. John Ashcroft in 1984 and 1988.
