Obituary: Ronald Breslow
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
