Dr. James Guthrie, Past President of ASCRS Research Foundation, dies at 81

Dr. James GuthrieDr. James F. Guthrie, of Norwalk, CT, who along with Dr. Patrick Mazier, was instrumental in revitalizing the ASCRS Research Foundation, which he led as President from 1992-1995, died June 8, less than four months after the death of his wife, Sandra Durkin Guthrie, an active Research Foundation volunteer.  Dr. Guthrie was 81.

“I remember Dr. Guthrie not only as one of the two individuals who invigorated the Research Foundation but also as the driving force behind the Northeast Society of Colon and Rectal Surgeons,” says the Society’s immediate past president, Dr. Steven D. Wexner, Weston, FL. “He made numerous personal significant contributions to research and education within the ASCRS.  He was a role model of an individual committed to excellence in colorectal surgery.  He was also a role model as a warm, kind, and caring friend.”
