J. J. Kirschenfeld

The late Jack Kirschenfeld was born in 1919 in Austria, came to the U.S. in 1923, and grew up in New York City. A graduate of Brooklyn College, he earned a medical degree at New York University, and was a medical resident and flight surgeon for the U.S. military during World War II. He was married for more than 60 years to the former Helen Chapin (now also deceased); they had five children. When not writing, teaching, or practicing medicine, Kirshenfeld enjoyed photography, painting, and music. Though a rural physician for most of his career, he later founded Alabama’s first graduate medical education program that was physically remote from one of the state’s two medical schools; the program is now known as the UAB Montgomery Internal Residency Program. He served as emeritus professor of medicine at the University of Alabama School of Medicine until his death in Montgomery in 2004.
