Happy New Year Herb. I still remember you, Cuz. Harold
August 28, 2013
I am the daughter of Dr. Coulson who as many of you know was his teacher and colleague for over 50yrs. I am so sorry to hear of his passing. Herb was always kind and cheerful (so many others here have mentioned this)and he will be missed greatly. My husband would look forward to visiting the lab and having lunch with all these great man. End of an era. Condolences to his family and many friends.

Herb was a part of WW2. When Herb entered the US Army in WW2, he was already on his way to a life of science. A smart colonel discovered Herb and instead of letting him go to the infantry, Herb was schooled in more science and became a part of a strategic push to forecast the weather. This was very important and needed when making a landing during an invasion. Herb wound up in the Far West Pacific, Okinawa, right after the great battle (1945). Strangely, when I was in the Army, I was also stationed in Okinawa, but that was 1962, long after the war. When the atomic bombs were dropped on Hiroshima and Nagasaki, Herb was called on to explain to the Generals and Admirals just what the hell atomic energy was. What a memory. My experience on Okinawa was far different than Herb's.

Herb Dessauer was a wonderful man and a wonderful scientist. I was a graduate student in physiology and I took biochemistry from him and other wonderful colleagues in the department of biochemistry. Paul Hyde was who passed in the 1990's was a great friend of Dessauer and they had lunch together every day. He was a student of Roland Coulson who also passed away before Katrina. He will be sorely missed by all of the LSUHSC family.
