He was 92. The Baby Tooth Survey Scientific advisory group, through the research directed by its principal investigators, quantitatively determined that above ground nuclear testing was poisoning the children of the world. With this evidence, the USSR, UK and US governments agreed to stop above ground nuclear weapons testing with the ratification of the Limited (Atmospheric) Test Ban Treaty in the fall of 1963. President Kennedy, in the conclusion of his address to the nation on July 26, 1963 said in support of the treaty: "Let us, if we can, step back from the shadows of war and seek out the way of peace. And if that journey is a thousand miles, or even more, let history record that we, in this land, at this time, took the first step." Born May 6, 1922, in Chester, IL, Jack graduated from the University of Illinois in 1940 and from Washington University School of Dentistry in 1944. After two years in the army, and three years in general practice with his father (WUSL DDS '18) in Chester IL, he established a private practice in Pediatric Dentistry in St. Louis and joined the faculty of the Washington University dental school in 1950. He taught Pediatric Dentistry, rising through the ranks to Professor of Pediatric Dentistry and Professor Emeritus upon his retirement in 1987. He served as President of the Dental Alumni Association in 1969 and was named a Distinguished Alumnus by the Association in 1977. He was on the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry for seven years (1959-1966) and served as Chairman of that Board in 1966. He was a Fellow of the American College of Dentists, of the International College of Dentists, and of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. Jack served as President of the North District of the St. Louis Dental Society as well as President of the Missouri Society of Dentistry for Children. He was Editor of the St. Louis Dental Society Bulletin (1953-1963), editor of the Journal of the Missouri Dental Association (1963-1973) and editor of the Alumni Newsletter (1973-2002). For six years (1963-1969) he served on the ADA Council on Journalism and was President of the American Association of Dental Editors in 1971. He was named a Distinguished Alumnus of Washington University in 1987.

LIBIT, JEFFREY MARC A man of true passions and a deep sense of commitment, passed away early Friday morning at his home in Albuquerque. Jeff spent his life taking care of others -- from family members to friends to professional colleagues -- often at the sacrifice of himself. He was born on May 23, 1945 in the Chicago suburb of Glencoe, Ill., and graduated from the University of Wisconsin and the DePaul University College of Law. He had an irrepressible creative gene and a zest for handiwork. He held numerous patents on inventions ranging from bottle caps to bathtubs. Prior to that, he spent three decades practicing law in Albuquerque. He was the definition of an avid fly-fisherman, and over the years, had probably acquainted himself with every rainbow trout in the San Juan River. He also took great joy in his yearly trips to Alaska. Jeff was indefatigable, overcoming a car accident that doctors said would leave him paralyzed for the rest of his life. His kindness and devotedness will not be forgotten by the many who knew and loved him as a father, husband, uncle, cousin, partner, collaborator, friend and buddy. He is survived by his wife Susan and son Daniel. A graveside service will be held Tuesday, August 19, 2014 at Noon, at Fairview Memorial Park Cemetery, 700 Yale Blvd. SE. At the family's request no floral arrangements will be present. Please visit the online guestbook for Jeffrey at www.FrenchFunerals.com. FRENCH 1111 University Blvd. NE 505-843-6333
