Dr. Albert Dorfman:

Dr. Albert Dorfman was born in Chicago on July 6, 1919 and received his early education in the Chicago Public Schools. His professional education was entirely at the University of Chicago from which he received an S.B. degree in 1936, a Ph.D. degree in 1939, and an M.D. degree in 1944. His early scientific interests were in bacterial metabolism. From 1939-1943 he was a research associate in Biochemistry at the University of Chicago. From 1946-1948 he was a member of the United Sates Army and chief of Biochemistry at the Army Medical Department Research and Graduate School in Washington, D.C. Dr. Dorfman returned to the University of Chicago in 1948 as an assistant professor of Pediatrics and since 1957 had been Professor of Pediatrics and Biochemistry. From 1957-1972 he served as Director of the La Rabida University of Chicago Institute and from 1962-1972 he was Chairman of the Department of Pediatrics. From 1967 until his death on July 27, 1982, he was Director of the Joseph P. Kennedy, Jr. Mental Retardation Research Center and the Richard T. Crane Distinguished Service Professor of Pediatrics and Biochemistry. His research was primarily concerned with the biochemistry of connective tissues with particular emphasis on the biosynthesis of glycosaminoglycans, the etiology of mucopolysaccharidoses, and the developmental biology of cartilage. Dr. Dorfman was also a member of numerous professional societies including the National Academy of Science (USA).

Resources:

The library provides a large variety of resources including state-of-the-art computers and PDA hotsync cradles, for both Palm Pilots and Sony Clies. In addition, the library subscribes to many pediatric and general medical journals, holds the bound volumes of previous years, and also has a number of non-circulating references. Right outside of the library are two photocopiers for general use. The Job Opportunities and Career Planning Information Station is also located within the library. Students and residents can use this resource for career planning and to search for jobs and fellowships by state. The Station also contains information from medical recruiting firms.
