See Original Daily Bulletin From This Date

An unusual life grant for cancer research, totaling $105,674 in the first five years alone, was awarded here today by the United States Public Health Service to a Jewish scientist, Dr. William A. Brodsky, professor of experimental medicine at the University of Louisville School of Medicine. Dr. Brodsky, a native of Philadelphia, is only 44.

A member of the university’s faculty since 1951, Dr. Brodsky won a five-year, “established investigatorship” from the American Heart Association in 1955. He is a graduate of Temple University and the University of Pennsylvania, in Philadelphia, studied further at the University of Cincinnati, and served as a captain in the Army Medical Corps during World War II. His parents, Mr. and Mrs. A. Brodsky, live in Philadelphia.
