Also gone is a music professor from New York University, a Russian history instructor from Wisconsin, an aircraft mechanic from Kansas City, a session bassist in Britain, a narcotics officer in Australia, a British minister, a scientist who worked for the FDA, and a man in California who is probably best described as a "beach bum".

A number of other people with this name have had pages that came and went on the web over the years. For a time there was even a character in an on-line science fiction story named David Burrows. He was a surgeon who played golf when he was not working at St. Mary's Hospital. Sadly, Dr. Burrows' fictional biography has been removed from the web, so you can no longer read its amusing variation on the old "purely coincidental" disclaimer.
