Ronald Breslow, 86, died on Oct. 25 in New York City.

“He was an intellectual giant. Talking with Ronald about science was like a chess match—one where your opponent was always four moves ahead of you. It was frustrating at first but then so much fun. What I remember most vividly was his kindness for his family, his colleagues, and everyone in his group. He lived an amazing life and will be deeply missed.”—Alanna Schepartz, colleague and friend

Most recent title: professor of chemistry, Columbia University

Education: B.A., chemistry, 1952, and Ph.D., chemistry, 1955, Harvard University

Survivors: wife, Esther; daughters, Karen and Stephanie
