A life in pictures

Measure what is measurable and render measurable in time what as yet is not

Franz Halberg's motto, "Measure what is measurable and render measurable in time what as yet is not" (Omnia metire quxcumque licet et immensa ad mensuram tempestive redige), has also been attributed to Galileo according to Giovanni dell' Acqua, the late professor of medicine at Catholic University in Rome.

Dr Howard Levine

Dr. Howard Levine, the late head of medical education at the New Britain (Connecticut) General Hospital, and professor of medicine at the University of Connecticut, implemented self-measurements of blood pressure, heart rate and other performance variables, including grip strength, around the clock from the time of a chronobiologic diagnosis of MESOR-hypertension until the end of life from amyotrophic lateral sclerosis, his weakness notwithstanding.

Farewell Erna dearest

Thou motherly presence for us chronobiologists,
Thou untiring and unrelenting driving spirit of the                   Chronobiology Laboratories of Minneapolis,
Thou deep-knowledged of the experimental problems
          and indispensible bestower of invaluable
Thou unparalleled in the handling of your tiny four-
          legged friends,
Thou unique moderator of disagreements inside and
          outside of the laboratory,
Thou always present, always active...
          above all a gentle friend and confident

we will miss you but
shall always cherish you in our hearts
just as we have done all these years.

Farewell dearest Erna, farewell
