Eugene M. Farber, MD(1917–2000)

      Eugene M Farber was a man of transitions. His training in dermatology was undertaken at the Mayo Clinic, Rochester, Minnesota, at a time when clinical and pathological knowledge began to be supplemented, and to some extent overshadowed, by research. He then arrived at the Stanford University Medical School, shortly before the epochal move of the Medical School from San Francisco to Palo Alto and from classical clinical practice to advanced basic research (Fig. 1).
