Rosalyn S. Yalow,

Nobel Medical Physicist,

Dies at 89

 

June 1, 2011

The New York Times

By DENISE GELLENE

 

Rosalyn S. Yalow, a medical physicist who persisted in entering a field largely reserved for men to become only the second woman to earn a Nobel Prize in Medicine, died on Monday in the Bronx, where she had lived most of her life. She was 89.

Her son, Benjamin Yalow, confirmed her death.

Dr. Yalow, a product of New York City schools and the daughter of parents who never finished high school, graduated magna cum laude from Hunter College in New York at the age of 19 and was the college’s first physics major. Yet she struggled to be accepted for graduate studies. In one instance, a skeptical Midwestern university wrote: “She is from New York. She is Jewish. She is a woman.”

Undeterred, she went on to carve out a renowned career in medical research, largely at a Bronx veterans hospital, and in the 1950s became a co-discoverer of the radioimmunoassay, an extremely sensitive way to measure insulin and other hormones in the blood. The technique invigorated the field of endrocrinology, making possible major advances in diabetes research and in diagnosing and treating hormonal problems related to growth, thyroid function and fertility.

Candidate Shrugs Off History’s Lure

By KATHARINE Q. SEELYE

 

MYRTLE BEACH, S.C. —

Tim Scott seemed unburdened by history.

He is poised to become the first black Republican

elected to Congress from the Deep South in more than a century,

having trounced former Senator Strom Thurmond’s son

in Tuesday’s Republican primary for South Carolina’s

First Congressional District.

The Forgotten War, Remembered

 

June 24, 2010

The New York Times

By KIE YOUNG-SHIM,

RALPH HOCKLEY, ZHOU MING FU

and BERNARD E. TRAINOR.

 

Sixty years ago today,

units of the North Korean Army crossed the 38th Parallel,

invading South Korea and starting the Korean War

— which grew into a cold war clash

between the United States and China.

Although more than two million soldiers and civilians

died over the next three years,

including more than 54,000 Americans,

the war is now an overlooked part of United States history.

The Op-Ed editors asked four veterans

for their memories of the conflict.
