    Notes 
    • The following notes have been contributed by Bernie Dorin:

      Bob was always the handyman of the family: carpenter, plumber, electrician. Perhaps that was because he was the eldest son; more likely it was because he had the requisite aptitudes. Both he and brother Hal were “ham” radio operators, communicating with their cousin Oscar and other “hams” worldwide.

      After earning a BS from the University of Chicago in Chemistry and a MS from the University of Illinois in biochemistry Bob “matriculated” to the U.S. Army, where he supervised a laboratory in an Army hospital. After receiving his commission in 1944 he returned to Chicago and married Shirley Blumenthal.

      After the war, Bob and Shirley returned to Chicago and Bob returned to the University of Illinois to earn an M.D. After his internship at Cook County Hospital, they moved to Redwood City, CA, where they still reside. Bob essentially had two careers, one of 20 years as a general practitioner in Redwood City, and a second of 25 years with the Veterans Administration in Menlo Park, CA.

      Shirley and Bob met when both were students at the University of Chicago, where Shirley earned a Bachelor’s in Science. She worked as a dietician at Children’s Memorial Hospital in Chicago. In the California chapter of her life, she earned a California Teaching Credential, an MS in Child and Family Psychology, and a MFCC license. It should be noted that Shirley’s uncle was Admiral Hyman Rickover, the father of our nuclear navy.
