Dr. Sink was made assistant professor of industrial health at the University in 1925, after serving as a health service physician for five years. In addition to his faculty and health service positions, he also maintained a private practice. He retired in 1957.

He joined the health staff on his graduation from the University Medical School in 1920. He had previously received his bachelor’s degree in 1911, and a master’s degree in zoology in 1915.

He was also a member of the First Congregational Church, the University Club, Royal Arch Masons, Chapter No. 6, and Fraternity Lodge No. 262, F&AM in which he served as worshipful master.

Dr. Sink was born Oct. 14, 1887, in North Chili, N. Y., a son of Herman and Caroline Gleasman Sink. He came to Ann Arbor with his parents in 1906, the year before he entered the University.

He married Maude Edna Ford, a University graduate and botany and biology teacher at Ann Arbor High School, in 1913. Mrs. Sink died in 1958.

Dr. Sink is survived by a sister, Mrs. Cora Sink Kellogg of Columbus, Ohio; a brother, Charles A. Sink, of Ann Arbor, who is president of the University Musical Society; and several nieces and nephews, including Mrs. Robert E. Perry, with whom he made his home at 1546 Packard.
