Julian Nance "Jay" Carsey, a former Maryland college president who shed identities like old clothes in an enigmatic quest that made headlines and became the subject of a best-selling 1989 book, died Aug. 20 at his home in Jacksonville, Fla. He was 65 and had suffered from liver problems. Carsey was the charismatic president of Charles County Community College in Maryland who was days away from leading the school's commencement exercises when he disappeared in May 1982.
