Ruth B. Sauber P’75


Ruth B. Sauber, 90, of Providence, died September 17. As medical student affairs officer at Brown, she worked with every medical student from the School’s inception in 1972 until her retirement in 1994. In 1983 the graduating MD class awarded her the Medical Senior Citation, the highest award presented to a medical faculty member. In tribute to her years of service, the Brown Medical Alumni Association established the Ruth B. Sauber Distinguished Medical Alumni Lectureship, delivered at each Reunion by an individual who views medicine as a socially responsible human service profession. “Brown University has lost a woman who had lovingly nurtured this Medical School from its birth,” the School’s first dean, Stanley Aronson, MD, said. Ruth is survived by a daughter, Amy Sauber Quinlan ’75; a son, Richard Sauber; and five grandchildren. Her husband, Robert Sauber, predeceased her. Donations in her memory may be made to Alpert Medical School, Box G-ADV, Providence, RI 02912.
