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.

Dr. Dessauer was one of the nicest professors and men that I worked with at LSU Health Sciences. He always had such a smiling face and friendly demeanor! He was always thankful for any assistance provided by the office staff. It makes me smile to think of his smiling face.

Unfortunately, I did not have the pleasure of knowing Herb very long before he retired from LSU but it was clear that he was one of the pillars on which any organization is built: steady, trustworthy, and dependable. He had the honor of touching many lives as a teacher and influencing many futures. He will be missed.

Danny, Becky, and Bryan,

Having a not some common last name like Dessauer is a blessing when the people who preceded you carried that name with such dignity. Countless times people asked if I was related to Herbert Dessauer when they discovered my last name. I would answer with pride, "Yes, that's my Uncle Herb", because it would always be followed by what a wonderful, kind and brillant man he was. My dad always joked about how he and his big brother shared that coat and car. How they would try to leave as little gas in the tank as possible for the other. They shared more then a coat and car. They shared a wealth of virtuals taught by our grandparents that make as all proud be named Dessauers.
