Arthur P. Hustead, a Washington physician who specialized in neurosurgery, died Feb. 13 at his home in Potomac, Md. He was 93.

The cause was cardiac arrest, his wife, Kate Hustead, said.

Arthur Procter Hustead was born in Scribner, Neb., and served in the Army Air Forces during World War II. He graduated from Yale University in 1948 and from Yale Medical School in 1952. He did a medical internship at Duke University Hospital and received neurological training at the Mayo Clinic in Rochester, Minn.

Dr. Hustead opened a practice in Washington in 1960. He was in Texas and Minnesota briefly in the 1960s but then returned to Washington and practiced neurosurgery here until retiring about 25 years ago.

His avocations included tennis, golf, skiing and dancing.

Survivors include his wife since 1946, Kate Jenkins Hustead, and a daughter, Cindy Hustead, both of Potomac; and three grandchildren.
