Arthur Charles Racine ’42

Arthur Charles Racine ’42, April 3, 2006, in Boise, Idaho. Art transferred to Reed after studying for a year at the University of Idaho, and earned a BA in biochemistry. He did research at the Kaiser Shipyard in Vancouver, Washington, before enlisting in the Navy V-I program and training at Notre Dame and Columbia universities. In 1943, he married Jeanne E. McKay; they had two children. Following World War II, he entered the Washington University School of Dentistry, graduating with honors in 1950. Art opened a private practice in oral surgery in Boise that same year. His love of fishing and hunting took him to Mexico and Canada, and the family spent summer weekends camping and fishing in the Sawtooth Valley and on or near the Salmon River. His community associations included membership in the Capitol City Kiwanis Club, City Club, Arid Club, and the Crane Creek and Hillcrest country clubs. He retired from dentistry in 1982. Survivors include his wife, his daughter and son, five grandchildren, and six great-grandchildren.
