A spokeswoman for the C. Everett Koop Institute at Dartmouth confirmed his death but did not disclose the cause.

It would be ironic if he died of AIDS.

Dr. Koop was probably one of the best Surgeon Generals we 've had for a long time, talking about HIV when many didn't want to. He only got into trouble with activists when he noted (correctly) that anal sex was a major disease vector. Not PC at the time. OTOH, he started the modern "war" on tobacco and championed pediatric health issues (he was a pediatric surgeon.)
