Dr. Mal Cole died suddenly at the age of 77 at his home near Casper on April 12, 2010. Born March 21, 1933 in New York City, he attended the Horace Mann School, Amherst College, and Georgetown Medical School. After training in Neurology on the Harvard Service at Boston City Hospital, he was a fellow in Neurology and Neuropsychology at The National Hospital for Nervous Diseases Institute of Neurology at Queen Square, and at St. Thomas’ Hospital, both in London. He returned to serve as a Captain in the Army Medical Corp at Walter Reed Hospital in Washington, and then entered the practice of Neurology and joined the faculty at the New Jersey College of Medicine at Seton Hall where he served as Acting Director of the Division of Neurology. In 1972 he came to Casper where he was the first, and for many years the only neurologist in the state. He was appointed Clinical Professor of Neurology at the University of Colorado where he held a monthly teaching clinic, even after he retired from active clinical practice. He served a term as Chief of Staff at Natrona County Hospital, and was instrumental in bringing many modern medical tools to Casper, including the first MRI machine in the state. Throughout his life in Wyoming, he enjoyed his horses and dogs, and the wide open spaces. He also maintained a strong interest in international affairs and geopolitics. He was married for 54 years to the late Susan Cole, who died in 2008, and is survived by their two sons, Andrew J. Cole, M.D. of Lincoln, Massachusetts and Douglas G. Cole, M.D. of Wayland, Massachusetts, their wives Holly and Nancy, and their children Devon, Will and Ben. A memorial celebration will be held at a later date. Donations may be directed to the Casper Humane Society.

Civil Dialogue

We provide this community forum for readers to exchange ideas and opinions on the news of the day. Passionate views, pointed criticism and critical thinking are welcome. Name-calling, crude language and personal abuse are not welcome. Moderators will monitor comments with an eye toward maintaining a high level of civility in this forum. Our comment policy explains the rules of the road for registered commenters.

If your comment was not approved, perhaps...

  1. You called someone an idiot, a racist, a dope, a moron, etc. Please, no name-calling or profanity (or veiled profanity -- #$%^&*).

  2. You rambled, failed to stay on topic or exhibited troll-like behavior intended to hijack the discussion at hand.

  3. YOU SHOUTED YOUR COMMENT IN ALL CAPS. This is hard to read and annoys readers.

  4. You have issues with a business. Have a bad meal? Feel you were overcharged at the store? New car is a lemon? Contact the business directly with your customer service concerns.

  5. You believe the newspaper's coverage is unfair. It would be better to write the editor at, or call Editor Jason Adrians at 266-0545 or Content Director David Mayberry at 266-0633. This is a forum for community discussion, not for media criticism. We'd rather address your concerns directly.

  6. You included an e-mail address or phone number, pretended to be someone you aren't or offered a comment that makes no sense.

  7. You accused someone of a crime or assigned guilt or punishment to someone suspected of a crime.

  8. Your comment is in really poor taste.
