Dr. Gertrude Nye Dorry '29, '40G, '63H

Dr. Gertrude Elizabeth Nye Dorry '29, '40G, '63H, who taught and worked in Iran for 50 years, died Oct. 25. She was 96.

After graduating from UNH with a B.A. in English, Dorry taught grade school in New Hampshire until 1942, when she took a teaching job in Bolivia. Four years later, she enrolled in linguistics at the University of Michigan and in 1952 made her first visit to Iran to research her doctoral thesis. There she met and married Mohammad Dorry, and settled in Tehran. Fluent in Farsi, Gertrude Dorry taught English for the Iran-American Society and at teacher-training colleges throughout Iran. In 1961, the Shah of Iran cited her for outstanding service to the country. She was the first woman and foreigner to be so honored.

In the 1960s, Dorry worked for the Peace Corps, ran the Experiment in International Living program in Iran and, in the '70s, headed the language department at Tehran Polytechnic. She had a loving relationship with stepdaughter Susan Dorry-Nyman of Wareham, Mass., who was the daughter of Mohammad Dorry's second wife, allowable under Muslim law. She is also survived by a brother, Edwin; a sister, Dorothy Nye Raymond '46; a niece; and two step-grandchildren.

David N. Allan '47, '49G and Natalie Chandler Allan '41 died 22 hours apart in September.

David Allan was an Army Air Corps veteran of World War II, and returned to UNH after the war. At the time of his retirement in 1979, he was the state biologist for New Hampshire and Maine. An artist and author, he was also an active volunteer in the Town of Lee, N.H.

Natalie Chandler Allan '41 was a teacher and volunteer. At age 70, with no previous business experience, she opened a greenhouse and ran it successfully for 10 years. The Allans are survived by son Jonathan '73; daughter Sarah Krycki '83; and three grandchildren.

Dr. Robert L. Tuttle '43

Robert L. "Bob" Tuttle '43 of Lee, N.H., died on Nov. 26. Well known as an Isles of Shoals "island ambassador" and historian, he was 82.

Tuttle received a B.S. in biology in 1943 from UNH and graduated from the University of Rochester School of Medicine with an M.D. in 1947. His career in medicine included positions as an associate professor and department chair of microbiology and immunology, and assistant dean and academic dean at the Bowman Gray School of Medicine in Winston-Salem, N.C. In the '70s, he was the associate dean and dean for academic affairs at the University of Texas Medical School at Houston. From 1981-84, he served as the regional dean at Texas Tech University School of Medicine at El Paso.

After retiring in 1984, he and his late wife, Dot, moved to Lee, N.H., and Tuttle joined the UNH Marine Docent Program. The founding president of the Isles of Shoals Historical and Research Association, he conducted tours, presented programs and served as guest lecturer. He is survived by many close friends.

Eunice Barrett Hill '58

Eunice "Betty" Barrett Hill '58 of Portsmouth, N.H., who became famous after recalling her encounter with a UFO, died on Oct. 17 at age 85.

After graduating with honors and a B.S. degree in social work, Hill pursued a career in child welfare, training foster parents and also working in the field of adoptions. She and her late husband, Barney, were activists for civil rights, human rights and social justice.

Their account of their 1961 abduction by a UFO, later recalled under hypnosis and leaked to the press without their permission, was turned into a movie and a book by John Fuller. For the past 15 years, Hill lectured and wrote on the subject of UFOs. In 1995, she published a book, A Common Sense Approach to UFOs. She leaves a daughter, son, three sisters, a niece and three grandchildren.
