He was a Kirkland House resident and member of the sailing team while at Harvard, but transferred after sophomore year to the University of California, Berkeley, where he received his BA in geology. His lifelong passion for the California wilderness was informed by an extensive knowledge of landforms and flora. A back-to-the-earth farmer and naturalist, he tended an abundant vegetable garden on his Sonoma County property.

He was a resident of Eliot House and a member of the A.D. Club and the Hasty Pudding Institute. At the time of his death, Louis was studying abroad on a Fiske scholarship awarded to him following his graduation. "Lou Williams spent four years with our class; we elected him Second Marshal. That rare commodity the nine letterman, he attained, moreover, All-America recognition in soccer, squash and lacrosse. Medicine was to be his calling, although his family has earned its high reputation primarily in the law, which would have suited him equally well. His probing, energetic, skeptical mind produced, among other achievements, a string of grades in his pre-medical courses which only once dipped so low as A-. He had a passion for sky-diving, and he learned to fly so well while in college that he had an instructor's license by graduation. He also made hosts of friends who, after his death at Trinity College, Cambridge, in the winter of 1965, established a soccer trophy and inscribed it to the memory of 'so beloved a product of his college and his time.' It is tempting to conclude that he would have been a giant of medicine, although many exacting and unpredictable tests lay ahead. It seems at least fair to say that by his death society lost an unusually rich potential."
DOUGLAS BORIS WOLF died March 16, 2009, in San Francisco, California. He was born in Brooklyn, New York, on October 20, 1942, and graduated from Trenton (New Jersey) High School.

However, having ignored his Gen Ed requirements and consequent warnings from the dean's office, he was barred from registering for his junior year; for some time thereafter he lived in the basement of Mallinckrodt Hall, spending his days in a large, green-leather armchair behind a desk piled high with reprints of papers from chemistry journals. He developed cognitive impairments after moving to California in the 1960s, and the Class has no information about his later career or interests. He leaves no immediate survivors.
