An active member of the New York Bates Club, Conrad Gaskin volunteered at college nights and with the Alumni-in-Admissions program. An avid reader, he was a serious jogger, swimmer, and scuba diver, activities he enjoyed especially at his summer home in Vineyard Haven, Massachusetts, where he belonged to Aquatic Voyagers and Polar Bear clubs. A devoted family member, he leaves his wife, Adrienne, son Conrad III, daughter Kayla Arianne, stepdaughter Nakesha, and mother Frances.

Shamir Glen Bartlett, ca. 1994.|
Following a year at Bates, Shamir Glen Bartlett withdrew to attend rabbinical school. He received his Ph.D. degree in religion from Einstein University in 1982. He served a small congregation at Temple Beth El in Brownsville, New York. On one of his many trips to Israel to study and renew his faith, he met his wife, Rachel Mutterpurl, at a kibbutz, and they returned to live in the United States. He felt the need to return to Israel to work for peace, and was killed in Gaza when a bomb exploded on the bus in which he was riding. His wife wrote that he enjoyed his time at Bates and remembered it fondly. She survives. An aunt, Eloise Bartlett Hardy '46, died in 1979.
Philip Otis, August 19, 1995.|
Philip Otis was an environmental science major at Bates. For the past three summers he had learned survival and climbing skills at the National Outdoor Leadership School in Wyoming. As a park assistant with the Student Conservation Association, he was extensively trained in climbing glaciers, and had participated in rescues. According to his stepfather, C. Angus Wurtele, Philip saw the ranger's job as "perfect segue into a life devoted to his goals of protecting the environment." At Mt. Rainier on a mission to rescue a climber in heavy wind and sub-zero temperatures, he and a colleague fell from the Emmons Glacier. Philip Otis wrote his senior thesis on Consider the Lilies; Finding Christian Roots in Environmentalism. His advisor, Professor Carl Straub, said Philip was interested in the link between Western religions and our generation's responsibility in caring for the environment. He leaves his parents, step-parents, two sisters, two stepbrothers, and a stepsister.
Harold B. Hitchcock, September 13, 1995.|
Professor Hitchcock was Dana Professor and chairman of the biology department at Bates from 1969 to 1973. A graduate of Williams College, he earned his Ph.D. degree from Harvard in 1938. After teaching at the University of Western Ontario, he joined the faculty of Middlebury College in 1943, retiring in 1968 as Albert Mead Professor. His chief research was with cave bats of the Northeast, and he received several research grants for those studies. He also studied reports of panthers in Vermont as a hobby. He was a member of several national zoological societies, the United Speleological Society, and the Nature Conservancy, and helped set out tree replacements for the elms on the Middlebury village green. He and his wife, Martine, made many friends at Bates. Three daughters and four grandchildren survive.
Beatrice Witter Donovan, August 15, 1995.|
As the wife of the late John Donovan '42, a member of the College government department from 1949 to 1959, and mother of four, Bea Donovan fulfilled her chosen role of homemaker nobly. Her irrepressible sense of humor and her particular talent for saying the unexpected endeared her to the community, and friendships were formed that lasted through the years. Daughter of missionary parents, she grew up in India, later graduating from Oberlin College with a degree in the classics. After her children were grown, she was free to pursue her own special interest in writing, graduating in 1994 from the Institute of Children's Literature. An essay detailing her school days as the daughter of missionaries in India appeared in the 1974 issue of The Yale Review and demonstrated her considerable skill as a writer and her remarkable powers of expression. During her final illness she was cared for by her children, Carey, Christine, Martha, and John, to whom we extend our deep sympathy on the loss of a truly special person.
