Woodrow Wilson Middlekauff

Middlekauff

Feb. 11, 1913 — May 19, 2013
Woodrow Wilson Middlekauff was born Feb. 11, 1913 in Hagerstown, Md. He passed away May 19, 2013 in Davis, Calif. at the age of 100.

He graduated from Juniata College in Huntington, Pa. in 1935 and earned a Ph.D. in entomology from Cornell University in 1941. While at Cornell, he married Phyllis Buckman from Philadelphia, Pa. She also was a Juniata College graduate.

He served under Stan Freeborn (later UC Davis’ first chancellor) in the U.S. Army during World War II.

Freeborn was instrumental in starting Woody’s career as a professor of entomology in late 1945 at the University of California, Berkeley. He taught and did research at Cal until his failing eye sight would not allow him to identify insects. By then, he was in his early 90′s.

He was an avid hunter and fisherman. Echo Lake, Calif., and Cedar Lodge on the South Island of New Zealand were among his favorite fly fishing destinations.

He was predeceased by his wife of more than 60 years, Phyllis (2003), and his youngest son, David (1967). He is survived by his oldest son, Jeffrey; daughter-in-law, Joan; and two grandchildren, John and Jeffrey.

As requested by the decedent, there will be no services or donation suggestions.
