George Duncan Bauman, publisher of The St. Louis Globe-Democrat from 1977 to 1984, died on Monday. He was 91.

Born in Humboldt, Iowa, in 1912, Mr. Bauman attended Loyola University in Chicago and was a reporter for The Chicago Herald-Examiner.

He moved to St. Louis in 1941 and went to work for The Globe-Democrat as a reporter in 1943. He later became an assistant city editor. He became the newspaper's personnel manager in 1951 and business manager in 1967.

The Newhouse family, which owns magazines and newspapers, bought The Globe-Democrat in 1955. Mr. Bauman was named publisher in 1967 and kept the title for 17 years.

In 1984, Newhouse sold The Globe-Democrat, and Mr. Bauman retired. The newspaper closed in 1986.

His wife of 51 years, Nora, died in 1990. In 1991, he married Lucy Hume, a longtime family friend and the widow of Fred Hume, former real-estate editor of The Globe-Democrat. She survives him, along with three stepsons and a stepdaughter.
