Kimmel--Herbert D., Ph.D. Originally from New York, died at home in Charleston, SC, June 5, 2012. He was 85. His loving wife, Barbara, was with him. From his humble Brooklyn beginnings, he joined the navy in WWII and later graduated from the University of Florida, earned a M.A. from NYU and a Ph.D. from USC. A Distinguished Research Professor of Psychology, Emeritus, of the University of South Florida, Herb was a man of boundless intellectual energy and a consummate scholar, well-known for his research in classical and instrumental conditioning, as well as the original studies of biofeedback. He exuded a passion for life that enveloped those around him. An athlete, an avid traveler and an artist who wrote poetry, fiction, lyrics and music, he founded Jazz West Records. The world is a better place because of his many scientific and artistic achievements and his profound personal relationships. He is survived by his devoted wife of 33 years, Barbara; four daughters, Ellie, Ann (Ritt Ritter), Jean, and Tracy (Jim Florack); and seven grand children. Colleagues, friends, and family are asked to celebrate his life in their own special ways. In lieu of flowers, memorials may be sent to the MUSC Foundation for Internal Medicine Support Fund, 18 Bee Street, Charleston, SC 29425, 843-792-2677. "Each moment lived complete will always be, a lasting part of sweet eternity." (from "Embers Glow", Herbert Kimmel, 1956)
