News of my demise is premature

Yale Medicine Magazine, 2006 - Spring


According to the alumni reunion report for the Class of 1960 published in the Autumn 2005 issue of Yale Medicine, Jerrold M. Post, M.D. ’60, led the class in “a brief silence in honor of our deceased classmates,” including me. While I am deeply honored, I am completely undeserving.

My wife, Rosemary, died three years ago. I am running an active research program at the University of Connecticut Health Center. I have participated in the Class of 1959 reunions, since I was closer to them, having taken a year off after the third year to do research before graduating.
