A Memorable College Prof

Fifty three years ago I took two quarters of organic chemistry, the toughest pre-med course I would ever take. The prof was a very short, bald, middle-aged man who zoomed around campus in a tiny, convertible, lime green, sports car.

Despite my two C’s I was accepted to a medical school from which I successfully graduated. This prof who put my medical career at risk was one of the finest teachers I had ever had. He taught me volumes about passion for your life’s work and, if you teach, a personal interest in your students’ well-being.

Not surprisingly he is still alive in his 90’s helping his students of the past whenever and wherever he can. We loved him and he loved us.
