During the past four decades, I saw the dream of one man realized and surpassed by another man, but in a slightly different direction.
In 1976 I came to interview for an assistant professor position at the Department of Pathology at UTMB. I was invited by the chairman at that time, the late Dr. Edward Reynolds. He was a Harvard University professor who recently had been appointed chairman. He was a physician scientist interested in the adverse effects of chemicals in the environment (toxicology) on human health and diseases. His interest paralleled mine.
