Dr. John M. Rehberger Sr., who treated diseases of the ear, nose and throat in Baltimore for more than 40 years, died Feb. 22 of pneumonia at Multi-Medical Center in Towson. He was 83.

Dr. Rehberger, an otolaryngologist, retired from private practice in 1990. He had lived in The Orchards in North Baltimore since 1956.

He maintained an office at St. Joseph Medical Center in Towson, and was on the staffs of Mercy Medical Center, Union Memorial Hospital and Greater Baltimore Medical Center.

He was on the faculty of the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine and University of Maryland Medical School, and was a consultant to Sheppard and Enoch Pratt Hospital.

Dr. Rehberger, who was born in Baltimore County's Long Green Valley, earned a bachelor's degree from Loyola College in 1937 and a medical degree from New York Medical College and Graduate School of Medicine. He studied otolaryngology -- the treatment of diseases of the ear, nose and throat -- at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

He completed his internship at Union Memorial Hospital and a residency in otolaryngology at the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine.

He was a diplomate of the American Board of Otolaryngology and a fellow of the American Academy of Otolaryngology.

He served in the Army medical corps during World War II and the Korean War.

His marriage to the former Dolores Stockton ended in divorce.

A Mass of Christian burial was offered Friday.

Peter Jay, a Harford County farmer and horse breeder for more than 50 years, died Sunday of heart failure at his Churchville farm. He was 87.

Until retiring about 10 years ago, Mr. Jay bred thoroughbred horses and raised beef cattle at Windmill Hill Farm, a 250-acre farm that he purchased in 1946. The early 19th-century farm is managed by his son, Peter A. Jay.

Mr. Jay was a longtime member and director of the Maryland Horse Breeders Association and was the organization's president from 1964 to 1966.

Born and raised in New York City, Mr. Jay was a 1932 graduate of Groton School in Groton, Mass., and earned his bachelor's degree in 1936 from Harvard College, where he had played on the polo team.

He was married in 1936 to Gertrude Holden McGinley, who died in 1973.

During World War II, he enlisted in the Army as a lieutenant and served with the 6th Field Artillery in the Pacific and Italian theaters of operation. His decorations included the Bronze Star. He was discharged with the rank of major in 1945.

An environmentalist and conservationist, Mr. Jay also enjoyed golf and sailing.

A memorial service will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday at Holy Trinity Episcopal Church, Route 155, Churchville.

In addition to his son, Mr. Jay is survived by his wife, the former Joan Sanger Church, whom he married in 1976; two sisters, Augusta Jay Huffman of Oklahoma City and Katherine Jay Bacon of Hartland Four Corners, Vt.; and two grandchildren.
