Quotes from biographical sources

Dr. Grant Lucas of Washington, D. C., died November 30, 1964 of a heart attack at the Freedmen’s Hospital with which he had been associated for a number of years.

He was, born in 1900 in Forestville, Md., and prepared for Dartmouth in the public schools. After graduating from Dartmouth he received his medical degree from the Howard University Medical School in 1925. He was a practicing physician, following in the footsteps of his mother who was also a doctor and had graduated from Howard Medical School in 1912.

Dr. Lucas was a man of many and varied interests. He collected books on Negro history, was an avid reader and chess player, and a breeder of English setters. He was associated with the Lincoln Society and was in the process of writing a novel at the time of his death.

He is survived by his widow, at 1738 15th St. N.W., a daughter, and a grandson who is looking hopefully toward Dartmouth. The Class extends sympathy to the surviving family.
