September 12, 1990

Graveside services for Dr. Gordon E. Madge, a native of Baltimore and professor of pathology at the Medical College of Virginia, will be held at 1 p.m. today at St. John's Episcopal Church, 9120 Frederick Road, Ellicott City.

Dr. Madge, who was 63, died Monday at his home in Richmond, Va., after a long illness.

On the faculty of the Richmond school since 1959, he also had been professor of ophthalmology and microbiology since 1975.

An expert on Reye's syndrome, the disease that sometimes follows a viral illness in children, he also lectured widely at other medical schools and hospitals, including the University of Maryland in the 1970s.

A graduate of the Boys' Latin School, the College of William and Mary and the University of Maryland School of Medicine, he served internships and residencies at hospitals in Massachusetts and Georgia and at the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

Dr. Madge served in the Air Force in the late 1940s at the Armed Forces Institute of Pathology and then joined the staff of the Johns Hopkins Hospital.

He is survived by his wife, the former Mary Hale; and his mother, Mary Emily Madge of Seaford, Del.
