In Memory

Lynn went back to his hometown, St. Louis, to practice surgery after receiving his M.D. from the University of Pennsylvania. He first interned at the Washington University School of Medicine, then served as an army captain for two years. Upon return he was at St. Luke’s Hospital for more than 50 years. For much of his professional life, he taught surgery at the Washington University School of Medicine. He also contributed articles to the medical profession.

Prior to Amherst, Lynn went to the John Burroughs School. He joined Psi Upsilon, played freshmen football and majored in biology.

He was a strong supporter of Amherst. For four years during the 1970s, Lynn was president of the St. Louis Amherst Association.

Lynn died from pneumonia in December 2016 at the age of 87. Our sympathies go out to his wife, Maryjane; sons, George and Paxson; and daughters, Jane and Debby ’84. He also left numerous grandchildren.

John Priesing ’50
