Y 4 AM: 1 4 nv- Because as a teacher, Dr. Perlmutter encouraged us to develop the faculty of active, intelligent assimilation, we were rescued from becom- ing mere "passive receptacles" of knowledge. Against a slavish, rote acquisition of facts, he was wont to offer a far more valid and dynamic mode of mastering concepts, which will serve us well throughout our lives as disciples of Hippocrates. As a counselor, he continues to demonstrate his readiness to work on our behalf in various student activities and institutions. Also, it is reassuring to know him as our friend in a therapeutic tete-a-tete, at those frequent times in our lives when the problems which plague us assume an ominous importance. Upon entering our new lustrum following our formal medical school training, we will not be unmindful of our obligation couched in these venerable words, "I will honor as my father the man who taught me the art." A Dr. Perlmutter's academic career is a long one, his degree of Bachelor of Arts came from the University of Pennsylvania, after which he received his Master's Degree and Doctorate of Philosophy from the Graduate School of Arts and Sciences. He is now Assistant Professor in Anatomy at Hahnemanng his time previously had been occupied by the Army of the United States, and by research for E. I. DuPont De Nemours, and for the United States Public Health Service. Also, he has been active on the teaching staff at the University of Pennsylvania. His interests encompass a wide range of subjects, from endocrine problems to coronary circulation. s :og i X . ,Q ,Q . 1 vllhs . i,', LL

1v""1Wff fa Ly, H" l I It was during the frenzied hrst hundred days in medical school that we began to realize how great was the endurance needed to heed our Dean's eloquent counsel to "persevere" despite the prospect of drown- ing in the sea of information which suddenly engulfed us, We had just been admitted to the ancient Aesculapian fraternity, hut, alas, the dis- tance from our innocence to the erudition of our mentors was indeed overwhelming. We anxiously cast about for one who was ahle to "bridge the chasm between the chair and the hc-nch." How fortunate, then, were we to know Dr. Perlmutterf to enjoy, at the inception of our intellectual filiation, the influence of a man in whom .1 happy enthusiasm for his work was joined to the heart affluence of a true humanist. W'e truly appreciated him in whom the synthesis of Uphilanthropia kai philo- technia" was in fact, a reality. 'h 4' fre' Q 5--, f 1. 41-A..

He showed dauntless fortitude in performing the Hrs! twenty retropubic prostatectomies in Philadelphia in the middle 19-iO's. A Past National President of Phi Lambda Kappa medical fra- ternity, Dr. Weinstcuck was intensely interested in that organizations Medical Students Aid Society. He never forgot his medical school days and often related his joy at graduation to us . . . "I walked down Fifteenth Street as if on clouds, with birds singing and bells tinkling in my ears." This man's personal qualities, no less than his stature in his field, will keep him close to us forever. IN MEMCDRIAM MARVIN SEVEN, B.S., M.D., F.A.C.P. B.S., 1947, Calvin College 1927-1960 M.D., 1951, University of Michigan Medical School The immensity of Dr. Seven's accomplishments during his short life is simply breathtaking. He was the national authority on Chelation Therapy and his book, Meta! Binding In Medicine, is already a classic. -Q He came to Hahnemann in 1957 as Assistant Professor of Medicine and Chief of the Rheumatology Section, after internship and residency at PGH and a year of Research Fellowship at the N.I.H. All twenty-five of his contributions to the medical literature, and " - - QQ even his unpublished data, have the unmistakable ring of genius. As an intern he used Versenol in the treatment of Hemochromatosis and was the first physician to use this drug clinically. At PGH he also developed a chelated iron form which can be given parenterally for anemias. He even invented the first direct writing phonocardiogram. In addition to his brilliant original research, Dr. Seven's mastery of Physical Diagnosis was most astounding to his students. Those of us fortunate enough to go with him on PGH rounds . . . "Ward Walks" . . . know that these were the high points of our training. Dr. Seven's lifelong search for scientific truth was not in vain. His voice and spirit will remain with us as long as we carry out our sacred Art.
