Allan Pitcher

Allan Pitcher, 94, a U.S. Agency for International Development civil engineer who worked in West Africa for 22 years, died March 24 at a hospital in Washington. The cause was a heart attack, said a nephew, Chris Darnell.

Mr. Pitcher, a District resident, was born in Lynn, Mass., and settled in the Washington area after retiring from USAID in 1977. In retirement, he spent 37 years as a docent at the Smithsonian National Museum of Natural History’s insect zoo.
