Lawrence E. Brubaker, a retired railroad employee who grew wheat in the yard of his log home, died of melanoma Wednesday at his granddaughter's home in Reisterstown. He was 92. Born in Braymer, Mo., he moved to Maryland as boy. His family drove the whole way in an Overland car with their pet collie riding on the running board, said his daughter, Joyce M. Danner of Finksburg. The family farmed on the Eastern Shore for a few years before moving to Reisterstown in 1929. Mr. Brubaker left school after the sixth grade to help his parents with the farm, his daughter said.

When Baltimore County police Lt. Dean E. Brubaker arrived in the parking lot of a Parkville shopping center last June, he poked his head into the window of a car where two women were shot. "Do you know who shot you?" he asked the woman who was conscious and had called 911. "The guy she is pregnant by shot us - David Miller," the woman responded, nodding toward her friend, Elizabeth Walters, who was ashen and unresponsive, Brubaker testified yesterday. The testimony came on the first day of Miller's double-murder trial in Baltimore County Circuit Court, where prosecutors are seeking a sentence of life without the possibility of parole for the deaths of Walters, 24, as well as her unborn child.

Thomas Murton, the Arkansas prisons chief who was the inspiration for the Robert Redford movie "Brubaker," died Oct. 10 of cancer at the Veterans Administration Hospital in Oklahoma City. He was 62. Mr. Murton advocated treating prisoners with respect, and he opposed the death penalty. He rose to prominence as head of Cummins State Prison in Arkansas in the 1960s. Gov. Winthrop Rockefeller appointed him head of the prison system in 1967. Mr. Redford's 1980 role in "Brubaker" as a reform-minded prisons chief who gets little support from his state's political establishment was loosely based on Mr. Murton's career in Arkansas.

Dr. Glen Brubaker lives on the same Pennsylvania farm where he grew up, but ask him where home is and he will say Tanzania. The 61-year-old Mennonite medical missionary has devoted nearly 30 years to helping Tanzanians battle disease. At Shirati Hospital near Lake Victoria, he practiced medicine, educated his patients on disease control and conducted research. "In Africa, a doctor has to do everything," he said. He helped to nearly eradicate leprosy from Tanzania and developed a treatment for Burkitt's lymphoma, a rare, fatal disease whose victims are most often children living in areas prone to malaria.

Kevin Brubaker is a grown man with a thing for lunchboxes. Not that there's anything wrong with that. He has hundreds of them, on display at home and at his Baltimore advertising office. And no, he is not a bachelor, which is why he also has lots and lots of them stashed in his attic. "I actually had a dream about lunchboxes," said Brubaker, a creative director at Euro RSCG Baltimore. "I was walking by my old grade school in my dream and there was - remember the old car, the Gremlin? - there was a Gremlin that was just packed to the gills with lunchboxes.

Vince Campanella remembers the hundreds of people who showed up in a remote village of the Kilosa area of Tanzania, Africa, seeking a little pill that would alleviate the terrible itching they were suffering from river blindness. "That was the most significant thing - I'm in a village where we expected to see 20 people and 300 people came," said Campanella, a member of Bonds Meadow Rotary Club that helped raise money for the Kilosa Region River Blindness Project. "We were watching Dr. Glen Brubaker, a medical doctor with the group, and he wasn't planning to treat the people that day," Campanella continued, "but he pulled out some pills and the demand was so great, they treated 178 people."
