RUDNEY, Harry
Husband, father, scientist. Born April 14, 1918, in Toronto. Died May 30 of cancer in Cincinnati, Ohio, aged 89.
By Sue ANDREW, Page L6
My uncle Harry was born into a family of struggling Jewish immigrants. Neither of his parents could read or write English. With four sisters crammed into what few sections of the house weren't rented out, Harry was relegated to sleeping on a cot in the dining room.
Despite his obvious academic potential, he attended the Central Technical School in Toronto to learn a skill and begin work as soon as possible.
After graduating, Harry took a contract job as a lab technician with the Toronto school board, setting up experiments at night for classes the next day. He developed a keen interest in biological science and frequently attended public lectures given by University of Toronto professors, including one by Bruno MENDEL, a German Jewish refugee and cancer researcher from the Banting Institute. After the lecture, Harry wrote a letter to Doctor MENDEL suggesting an experiment.
Dr. MENDEL was so impressed that he invited Harry to tour the lab and introduced him to Sir Frederick Banting, who must have recognized his potential as well because he persuaded the school board to let Harry break his contract to work at the institute.
Dr. MENDEL took Harry under his wing and mentored him in every way, even paying for his tuition at University of Toronto from his own pocket. Harry graduated with a degree in biochemistry and physiology in 1947. He applied three or four times to the University of Toronto medical school, only to be rejected repeatedly because of quotas for Jewish students in place at the time.
Unfazed and never bitter, he moved to Cleveland, received his PhD in 1952 at Western Reserve University and eventually worked his way up to chair of biochemistry and molecular biology at the University of Cincinnati College of Medicine.
While attending university in Toronto, Harry began a courtship with his little sister Pearl's close friend Bernice SCHNIEDER/SNIDER/SNYDER, whom he suddenly noticed wasn't so little any more. They remained loving soulmates for more than 60 years of marriage. They had two sons and, with intelligence and warmth, worked to meet the challenge of nurturing the unique qualities in each of them.
Harry further distinguished himself in the field of cholesterol biosynthesis and it was his fundamental research that was the basis for the cholesterol-lowering drugs commonly known as statins that are taken by millions of people everyday.
I asked him once if he ever felt resentful of the fortunes made from his research, and he said it never even occurred to him to exert proprietary rights over his work. His motives were pure and simple. He only wanted to contribute. He said once that he was determined to live long enough to see the results of the Human Genome Project. He never feared the future. He embraced it.
Sue ANDREW is Harry's niece.
