Dudley P. Jackson, 68, Georgetown hematologist
Dr. Dudley P. Jackson, chief of the division of hematology at the hospital at Georgetown University, died Tuesday after an apparent heart attack while playing tennis at the Bare Hills Tennis Club.
A memorial service for the 68-year-old Clarksville resident will be held at 1:30 p.m. today at the Mount Zion United Methodist Church in Highland.
At Georgetown since 1972, he served as chairman of the department of medicine until 1982 and then became associate director of the training program in internal medicine there. Earlier, he had been associated with Johns Hopkins for much of the time since he entered its medical school, from which he was graduated in 1947.
From 1949 until 1951, he served in the Navy at the Naval Medical Research Institute in Bethesda.
He won many awards, including the Henry Strong Denison Scholar in Physiological Chemistry, a John and Mary R. Markle Scholar in Medical Science, a U.S. Public Health Service Research award, and seven honors for teaching at Georgetown, including five from students and two presentations of the Kaiser-Permanente Award.
In addition to the Hopkins and Georgetown posts, he was a consultant at the former Anne Arundel General Hospital, the Loch Raven Veterans Administration Hospital, the former City Hospitals, the National Academy of Sciences, the National Institutes of Health, several units in the U.S. Public Health Service, District of Columbia General Hospital, Veterans Administration Hospital in Washington, Good Samaritan Hospital and the Memorial Hospital in Easton.
A specialist in internal medicine and hematology, he wrote many published professional papers and was an editor of several medical journals, and of a section on hematology in an internal medicine textbook.
The vice president of the Johns Hopkins Medical and Surgical Association, he also served as recorder of the American Clinical and Climatological Association and was a fellow of the American College of Physicians. He belonged to the Baltimore and District of Columbia medical societies, Medical and Chirurgical Faculty of Maryland, American Physiological Society, American Federation for Clinical Research, American Society for Clinical Investigation and American Association for the Advancement of Science.
Born in Roanoke, Va., he attended Randolph-Macon College before starting his medical studies. But he did not get a degree then because he was enrolled as a member of an accelerated World War II Navy program. Later the college gave him a Distinguished Alumni Award in 1974, an honorary doctorate in 1982 and finally in 1988, a bachelor's degree.
He is survived by his wife of 44 years, the former Ada Patricia Custer; and a sister, Elizabeth Coulter of Chapel Hill, N.C.
Restorer of buildings
Jennifer Shakespeare, who became co-managing partner of the firm doing architectural work for the "This Old House" television program, died last Sunday of cancer at a hospital in Boston.
A service for the 42-year-old resident of Cambridge and Provincetown, Mass., was conducted yesterday.
She had been associated with Design Associates of Cambridge and Nantucket, Mass., since the early 1980s. The firm also did restorations and new designs that were covered in national magazines.
She had been interested in restoration while living in Baltimore in the late 1970s and worked for RTKL Associates and what was then Mark Beck Associates. At that time, she bought and restored a house in Butchers Hill and, according to friends, regularly adopted stray dogs. She also worked in New York City before moving to Baltimore.
Born in Littleton, N.H., she was a graduate of the Ethel Walker Preparatory School in Simsbury, Conn., and of Bennington College in Vermont. She had a master's degree in architecture from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology.
A member of many professional and historical preservation groups, she also served on the board of Independence House, a service on Cape Cod for battered women and children and survivors of sexual assault.
She is survived by her life partner, Leslie Parsons of Cambridge; her parents, George and Evelyn Shakespeare of Underhill Center, Vt.; a brother, William MacIntyre Shakespeare of Marlboro, Vt.; a sister, Katherine Shakespeare of Burlington, Vt.; a niece and a nephew.
