    Dr. Diuguid was and instructor of mine at Harris Stowe. I also worked as a lab assistant at the college and a few times at his laboratory on Jefferson.

    I credit Dr. Diuguid as a major reason why I had a successful career as a meteorologist.

  2. Calvin Riley says:

    Dr. Diuguid was one of my professors at Harris Stowe. I learned today that he is in a nursing home. He was a GREAT professor with a lot of knowledge and wisdom. I enjoyed his class. I did not know that it had been so long, because I am also a retired educator.

    Dr Diuguid hired me as a lab assistant doing clean-up and glass blowing in his Jefferson Ave lab. He was instrumental in my going Wash. University in 1952 and has been a presence in my life as a mentor since.

    Dr. Diuguid was my chemistry Professor at Harris in 1955-56. He was a joy and an inspiration. We always looked forward to his classes. Two other of his students , Jim Lang and Bob Bernard, and I took him to lunch once in a while just to keep in touch and let him know that he had an impact upon our lives. We thought that he was a remarkable man. I’d like to think that both Jim and Bob will continue the discussions with the Professor in heaven. Sorry for your loss. Don Dunn
