Buth, Dr. Wilfred M. (? - 2 May 1978)

The son of a former Granton clergyman and himself a graduate of Granton High School, Dr. Wilfred M. Buth, 56, associate professor and chairman of the history department of California Lutheran College, died May 2, according to “The Lutheran Standard,” a national magazine of the American Lutheran Church.
