Victoria Kingsley, a psychologist with a practice in East Hampton, died on May 19 in Buffalo, not long after being diagnosed with small-cell cancer. She was 73. Dr. Kingsley saw patients for many years in New York. After leaving the city, she established a full-time practice here, working out of her residence in Northwest Woods. As longtime patients learned of her sudden illness they flooded her with calls of support and encouragement, her son said.
Richard Maxwell Dunn, a teacher, scholar, and banker who taught at the Ross School and East Hampton High School, died of pancreatic cancer on Friday in New York City. He was 70 and had been ill for 15 months.
Mr. Dunn, who lived full time in Springs since 2003, followed an unusual career path. He received a B.A. from Dartmouth College and a Ph.D. in French literature from Yale University. From 1969 to 1974, he was a French professor of the University of Chicago.
The East End Mental Health Awareness Day, a free conference, will be held on Saturday at Southampton High School. Assemblyman Fred W. Thiele Jr., who recently helped secure $175,000 in the state budget to support the South Fork Behavioral Health Initiative, is slated to speak about what mental health initiatives will mean to the East End.
