October 18, 2006

Edward Bogier Jr., a retired college and library administrator, died of an aneurysm Oct. 9 at the University of Maryland Medical Center. The Pikesville resident was 66.

Born in Brooklyn, N.Y., he moved to Baltimore as a child and lived on East Lanvale Street. He was a 1958 graduate of Dunbar High School and earned a bachelor's degree in urban planning from what is now Morgan State University. He also earned two master's degrees, one in management from Morgan and another in information systems from the University of Maryland, College Park.

After working on the staff of then-Mayor William Donald Schaefer, Mr. Bogier became head of facilities management for the Enoch Pratt Free Library and directed the upkeep of its downtown Central Library and branches.

He worked briefly at the Department of Public Works before becoming an assistant to the vice president of finance and management at Morgan, retiring there last year.

Services were held Saturday at Union Bethel African Methodist Episcopal Church in Randallstown, where Mr. Bogier was a member and sang in its choirs.

Survivors include his wife of 42 years, the former Gloria White; two daughters, Robyne Bogier-Bass of Pikesville and Tosha Hershey of New Park, Pa.; two sisters, Beverly Warner and Betty-Ann Bogier, both of Baltimore; a brother, Marion Boyd of Columbia, S.C.; and four grandchildren.
