Dr. Marshall Emanuel Deutsch

Marshall Deutsch

Marshall Deutsch

Dr. Marshall Emanuel Deutsch, 96, spouse of the Reverend Judith Deutsch, died on December 23, 2017. He was born in New York City, and was a graduate of DeWitt Clinton High School and the City College of New York. After serving in the Army Air Force during World War II, Marshall received a PhD in physiological studies from New York University in 1951.

Marshall had a varied career, but considered himself primarily an inventor of medical diagnostic tests, and held 60 patents, including two patents referred to in hundreds of subsequent patents by others, which introduced a simplified automatic system of assay that later was applied to home pregnancy tests.

An extremely witty person, Marshall was a solver of difficult puzzles including The Nation’s puns and anagrams puzzles and the New York Times diagramless ones. He was a folk dancer, a linguist, and a lover of Mozart operas. He had traveled to 25 countries (some while working for the US Agency for International Development and the UN Capital Development Fund.)

Marshall was editor of the Boston Mycological Society’s Bulletin for more than 12 years, and the author of many scientific and non-scientific articles and letters. He was especially proud of his letters in the Journal of the American Medical Association. He produced and presented more than 200 radio shows on nutrition and wrote on the topic for The Realist. He was a Life Member of the American Association for the Advancement of Science.

In 1955, he helped found a Unitarian Fellowship in Morristown NJ, which still flourishes. After living in New Jersey, New York, and Michigan, Judith and Marshall remained in Sudbury MA for 51 years. They recently moved to Corrales, NM.

Marshall believed in exercise and worked out on a stationary bicycle for an hour each day up to December 6th, the day before he suffered two strokes.

He is survived by Judith, his wife of 70 years, and their three adult children; Pamina Margret Deutsch and son-in-law Dr. Michael Baron of Corrales, NM; Dr. Ethan Amadeus Deutsch of Seattle WA; and Dr. Freeman Sarastro Deutsch and his daughter-in-law, Jessie Saacke of Cambridge, MA; and his granddaughter Melina baron Deutsch.

Memorial services will be 1:00 PM on April 21 at Unitarian Universalist Westside Congregation, Rio Rancho NM, and 3:00 PM on April 28 at First Parish Church, Sudbury MA.

Messages of condolence may be sent to the Rev. Judith Deutsch, P.O. Box 2848, Corrales, NM 87048.
