Editorial - A Birthday tribute to the Pediatrician, Professor Donald E Greydanus: Doch dyn plicht! (pp. 253-256) $0.00
Authors:  Joav Merrick
Donald E. Greydanus was born in Paterson, New Jersey, United States from Dutch and Scotch ancestry. The Greydanus family name can be traced to the early 17th century in Friesland, the Netherlands. The past four centuries has produced a number of Professor Greydanus’ and Don is a 20th century example of this ancestral record. Members of this heritage often choose studies in theology (Calvanism), philoposphy, or medicine. Under the influence of his nurse mother, Don selected medicine, while an older brother entered the study of theology.

After his medical training in Newark, New Jersey (College of Medicine and Dentistry of New Jersey), Don went to the Mayo Graduate School of Medicine for his post-graduate medical training. Two major events happened in his life during his internship in the early 1970s in Minnesota---he met his future wife and he was inducted into the US Vietnam war (1956-1975). Though he could have postponed his military service, he felt he should answer this call especially since his family had relatives who had served and died in World War II. It was shocking to this young physician Greydanus how American veterans were treated by fellow countrymen, when returning from such an unpopular and controversial war.

When released from the war zone, he returned home, married Kathy Rickheim, and completed residency training in pediatrics at the Mayo Clinic. He finalized his formal studies in pediatrics with a fellowship in adolescent medicine at New York University School of Medicine under the director of the well-known professor Adele Dellenbaugh Hofmann (1926-2001), one of the founders and icons of this field dedicated to youth and a leading force in the development of adolescent medicine in the 20th century.
