Louise Sulzberger; Philanthropist in New York City

Louise Mayer Sulzberger, 103, a New York City philanthropist and social service worker, died Saturday in her Manhattan home.

She was married to stockbroker David Hays Sulzberger, the brother of Arthur Hays Sulzberger, publisher of the New York Times from 1935 to 1961. She was also the great-aunt of Arthur Ochs Sulzberger Jr., current publisher of that newspaper.

The daughter of banker and philanthropist Hugo Blumenthal, she was a nurse's aide at Roosevelt Hospital during both world wars and later served as a member of the New York State Commission on Aging and the community planning board for Manhattan's Upper East Side.

She was also a champion golfer, winning the women's division of the Century Country Club tournament in Purchase, N.Y., in 1929, 1933 and 1939. She also won several Westchester County championships and New York State senior tournaments.
