A 1922 graduate of the University of Maryland pharmacy school, he began his career as owner of Gould's Pharmacy in Highlandtown. He sold it after about 20 years but continued to work there part-time even after taking over the manufacturing company.

He is survived by his wife of 56 years, the former Anna Marie Kinnier; a son, Dr. W. Michael Gould of Cockeysville; two daughters, Marguerite Norwood of Towson and Anne Millar of Baltimore; and six grandchildren.

The family will hold a reception for friends starting at 7 p.m. today at North Oaks, 725 Mount Wilson Lane.
