Rudolph Altschul: Man and Scientist

  • S. Fedoroff
Part of the Altschul Symposia Series book series (ALSS, volume 1)


Professor Rudolf Altschul was a colorful, highly-cultured individual who left an enduring legacy through his friends, his students and his writings. For those who were not privileged to know him, I have a difficult task to convey a sense of his spirit, trends of thought, and love of science, art and music. To those who did know him, perhaps I can jog the memory.
