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.

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.

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 " - -
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
