Harry Herbert Boyle ’51 was born to Henry Boyle of Maryland and Mary Jorgensen of Copenhagen and grew up in San Francisco. In January 1946 he enlisted in the Army and served in Tokyo under General Douglas MacArthur. It was in Tokyo that he converted to Catholicism. Upon discharge, he went home to San Francisco and attended SCU before moving to Los Angeles to finish college, living for a time in Santa Ana, where he was a reporter for the Santa Ana Register. He earned his Ph.D. in English from UCLA and taught at the University of Arizona in Tucson, but returned to California and ending up in San Diego, which is where he met his second wife and lived for nearly 40 years, teaching English at various colleges. In 2014 the couple retired to San Juan Capistrano, California. Harry’s mother graduated from nursing school in 1905 and subsequently worked for the U.S. Department of the Interior as a nurse on Indian reservations in the Dakotas. Later she joined the Army and worked in China. Always fascinated by her stories, Harry remained interested in indigenous issues. His favorite charities were those that benefited Native Americans. An avid hiker, Harry’s favorite summer vacations were spent backpacking in the High Sierra. He died on Dec. 18, 2017, just 19 days shy of his 90th birthday. Harry had no siblings but is survived by four children and one grandchild from his now-deceased first wife, Gianna Di Girolomo: Henry Robert Boyle and Brynn Elizabeth Boyle, and Brynn’s son, Dameon Ivory Boyle—all currently of Berkeley; Ann Marie Boyle of Los Angeles; and Mia Katherine Boyle of Seattle, Washington. His second wife, Donna Rodman, his stepdaughter, J. Lisa Allen, and his step-grandchildren, Cooper and Kate, all of San Juan Capistrano, also survive him.
