About Jerome Arnold Uram

An M.I.T. professor and his wife were among four Americans killed yesterday in a plane crash in the mountains of central Peru, the Associated Press reported.

Dr. Jerome A. Uram, 35, and his wife, Anne, 38, of Wellesley st., Newton, were killed when the twin-engine DC-3 crashed. Dr. Uram was a professor of food toxicology at M.I.T.

Lima reports also said that Dr. Richard Block, 50. and his wife, Margaret, 50, were killed in the crash. Both are protein chemists attached to the Boyce-Thompson Institute in New York. The Blocks’ home address was not immediately known.

Faucett Airlines in Peru reported that one of its planes crashed between the Peruvian towns of Huanuco and Pucallpa. Another aircraft reported seeing the airliner in flames. The plane carried 15 passengers and three crew members.

Dr. Uram came to M.I.T. in July from the nutrition studies section of the National Institute of Health at Bethesda, Md. He had attended Pennsylvania State and received his PhD at Harvard.

A M.I.T. spokesman said the Urams and Blocks had been in Peru several weeks making nutrition studies and were expected back in about a week.
