Austin W. Quinn, a former booking agent and avid golfer, died of a heart attack Sept. 26 at Harford Memorial Hospital in Havre de Grace. The Middle River resident was 59.

Mr. Quinn was born in Darby, Pa., and raised in Springfield, Pa. He was a 1967 graduate of Cardinal O'Hara High School in Springfield, where he played football and basketball.

He attended the University of Maryland, College Park, where he played football until injuries ended his athletic career. In 1974, he earned a bachelor's degree in business from the University of Baltimore.
