Sixty years ago, in 1962, a group of New York City–area graduates took the first steps toward creating the Einstein Alumni Association. Pictured here are alumni and staff attending an early organizational meeting. From left: Stanley Ames, M.D. ’60 (deceased); Caroline Benima; Seymour Rothman, M.D. ’62; Irwin Singer, M.D. ’62; Lucille Madonia, dean’s representative; Martin I. Rosenthal, M.D. ’59 (deceased); Robert Grenitz, M.D. ’61; Margit L. Weiss, alumni secretary; Michael Zales, M.D. ’64 (deceased); Neil Barton, M.D. ’62 (deceased); and Edmund Zahn, M.D. ’60. Today more than 10,000 Einstein M.D., M.D./Ph.D., and Ph.D. graduates, who become members of the Alumni Association upon receiving their diplomas, serve as physicians, medical educators, and biomedical scientists. The Einstein Alumni Association provides scholarships to current Einstein students, and it sponsors milestone events such as the annual white coat ceremony.
