Bill was born in 1929 to Franklin P. and Katherine T. Goulburn. Bill was a 1947 graduate of Collingswood High School, who then attended Dartmouth College from 1947 to 1951, Dartmouth Medical College from 1950 to 1952 and the University of Pennsylvania School of Medicine from 1952 to 1954 where he received his Medical Doctorate Degree. His Residency were completed at Hartford Hospital from 1954 to 1956. He practiced medicine as a GP and Obstetrician for 8 years with his uncle Harry Tatem, MD in Audubon, NJ. During this time Dr. Goulburn delivered 500 babies. He completed residency in Orthopedic Surgery at Graduate Hospital in 1966 and was an Orthopedic Surgeon for many years at West Jersey Hospital/Virtua and South Jersey Orthopedic Assn.
Bill was a varsity athelete on the swimming and football teams at Collingswood and a waterfront director at Camp Singing Eagle Lodge in New Haven during college. Bill was a lifeguard with the Ocean City Beach Patrol from 1944 to 1949. He had a lifelong curiosity starting with stamps and trains as a boy, and antique cars and collectibles as an adult. He loved the Jersey shore and his home on the bay. He was a lifelong member of the Collingswood Presbyterian Church and during summers, the Wells Memorial Chapel in Avalon, NJ. Bill was kindhearted and loved – he was the father of the family (and loving mentor and father to many others). He will be remembered in the hearts of many and his legacy will live on in the many lives he touched.
