Obituary for Dr. Peter M. Mauch

Dr. Peter M. Mauch
Dr. Peter Michael Mauch of Boston, Massachusetts, passed away on September 8, 2017 at the age of 70. He is survived by his wife Barbara Rodriguez; children Natalia and Julian; brothers Jonathan (Janice) of Cincinnati, Ohio and David (Beth) of Amesbury, Massachusetts; nieces Jennifer Mauch, Kira Fink, and Andrea Rodriguez; and nephews William Mauch and Johnny Rodriguez; and many friends and colleagues. He was preceded in death by his parents William and Marion (Eberle) Mauch of Cincinnati, Ohio. Interment occurred September 9, 2017 at Mount Auburn Cemetery.

Dr. Mauch was a Professor of Radiation Oncology at Harvard Medical School and Associate Chair in Radiation Oncology at Brigham and Women's Hospital. He maintained a National Institute of Health funded laboratory for over 20 years; a busy clinic; and developed a strong clinical research program, first devoted to the treatment of Hodgkin Lymphoma, and later to the surveillance and prevention of the late effects of treatment in long-term survivors.

Dr. Mauch was a co-editor of five books and a co-author on over 300 papers. In helping long-term survivors of cancer, he was awarded two workshops by the Rockefeller Foundation to help continue and promote this work.

Dr. Mauch was passionate about his profession and cared deeply for his patients and their families. When he became ill, he said he had trouble accepting help. He was more comfortable offering help to others.

Dr. Mauch was grateful for the opportunities afforded by attending Walnut Hills High School in Cincinnati, which he claimed helped him throughout his medical training and career. He graduated from Oberlin College and spent a year in a PhD program in microbiology at Washington University. He went to medical school and interned at St. Louis University. He started his residency in Radiation Oncology at the Harvard Joint Center For Radiation Therapy in 1975, which defined his future in the field.

Memorials may be made to the Walnut Hills Alumni Foundation, 3250 Victory Parkway, Cincinnati, OH 45207 or to Camp Kesem at MIT, a program that supports children through and beyond their parent’s cancer.
