Morton Rousuck Dog show judge


Morton Rousuck, a dog show judge who specialized in Boston terriers, died Feb. 7 at his home in Shaker Heights, Ohio, after a long illness.

Mr. Rousuck, who was 83, had been an executive of a furniture manufacturing company and a department store in Cleveland before retiring about 10 years ago. He became interested in Boston terriers through an older brother and was accredited as a dog show judge while in his 20s.

He worked nationwide as a judge of the terriers and other breeds for more than 50 years, including a show of the Boston Terrier Club of Maryland in 1977.

A native of Cleveland, he attended Case-Western Reserve University and was a graduate of the John Marshall Law School.

He had been a member of a World War II draft board, the Service Corps of Retired Executives and the steering committee of the Young People's Congregation of the Fairmount Temple in Beachwood, Ohio, where services for Mr. Rousuck were held Feb. 10.

He is survived by his wife, the former Irene Winograd; a daughter, J. Wynn Rousuck, theater critic for The Sun; and two sisters, Honey Rosenthal and Rose Rousuck, both of Cleveland.
