Memories of Larry: A Tribute to Lawrence C. Kolb Psychiatr Q (2007) 78:251–253 DOI 10.1007/s11126-007-9051-1 EDITORIAL N OTES Steven E. Katz Published online: 8 September 2007 Springer Science+Business Media, LLC 2007 It was the summer of 1966. After a stint as an on-the-job trained psychiatrist in the army during the Vietnam Era I began my psychiatric residency at Columbia University. As soon as I crossed the threshold of the austere New York State Psychiatric Institute the respected Chairman of the Department and coauthor of the preeminent psychiatric textbook in the world Lawrence Kolb became a ‘‘great eminence’’ to be both revered and feared. Little did I know that we would become good friends and colleagues of 40 years duration. Larry attended weekly resident meetings where I soon came to know him as a dedicated, sen- sitive but no nonsense ‘‘old school’’ administrator. I remember his response to a group of residents who complained about the condition of the bed in the resident on call room. I expected Larry to be sympathetic. He was anything but sympathetic and said that when he was a resident at Johns Hopkins there was no bed in the on call room and the residents were expected to stay up all night.
