I did not know Dr. Sherwin until 1975, when I began my fellowship in endocrinology at Yale University. However, I later learned of Bob’s lovely family, which consisted of his mother (Frieda Sherwin) and father (Harold Sherwin) as well as his very accomplished brother, Dr. Paul Sherwin (an English professor at City College in New York City). Bob had many outstanding accomplishments as a trainee prior to his time at Yale. Perhaps his greatest accomplishment was as a star on his high school baseball team, which won the city championship in Yankee Stadium. As he is a Yankees fan, I have no doubt that this was Bob’s most outstanding early achievement. As an undergraduate student at Union College, Bob not only received honors in biology but he also met his future wife, Leslie, who played a key role in his future successes, especially their three children, Ben, Sara, and Jenny. As a born-and-bred New Yorker, Bob received his MD degree at Albert Einstein College and completed his residency in medicine at Mt. Sinai Hospital on the Upper East Side of Manhattan. Prior to coming to Yale as a postdoctoral fellow, Bob worked under Dr. Reubin Andres at the National Institutes of Health (NIH), where he modeled insulin kinetics using the previously unheard-of insulin clamp technique. He joined the Yale faculty as an assistant professor in 1974 and retired 44 years later in December of 2018.
