Obituary 1662 Virology Division News In Memoriam Don Summers (1934–2001) Donald F. Summers, virologist, died on 27 Sept. 2001, aged 67, of cancer. He was an energetic and passionate man and this vitality encompassed all aspects of his life – his work, his family and his friends. He was known for his love of life and his intolerance of bu- reaucracy. Born a mid-westerner in 1934, he gained his MD with honours at the University of Illinois in Chicago. He spent his internship and residency on the east coast in Boston City Hospital before being attract- ed to research in the early sixties at the NIAID on the NIH campus in Bethesda, where his lifelong interest in viruses took root. After this initiation, he moved to a faculty position at the Albert Einstein College of Medicine in the Bronx, New York where he met his second wife to be, Ellie Ehrenfeld; thus began the team of ‘Don and Ellie’ known to many colleagues and friends around the world. It was his warmth and respect for others and an eagerness to meet and promote other scientists that brought him and Ellie into contact with so many colleagues and friends worldwide.
