About this title:

Synopsis: A book of memoirs by the world's oldest full-time immunologist, Souvenirs starts in Transylvanian Hungary and goes around the world as it evokes a century of enthusiasts, famous and unknown, who have found inspiration and sustenance in science and the arts. The book's rich itinerary includes such places as Paris, Rome, Venice, Budapest, London, Sao Paulo, Bessarabia, Syria, Kyoto, Fiji, Borneo, Beijing, and New York. Souvenirs brims with stories about Nobel laureates, diplomats, and artists, including Bela Bartok, who frequented Dr. Ovary's childhood home, Salvador Dali, Birgit Nilsson, and Dr. Ovary's godmother, the Baroness Karola Bornemissza, the first woman in the world to fly in a plane. Dr. Ovary looks lovingly to the past yet continues to find inspiration in the world of chance and possibility. Breathing through each decade of the century, Souvenirs is one man's farewell to this century and invitation to the next.

About the Author: Zoltan Ovary, who was born in Transylvania in 1907, is a professor and scientist at the New York University (NYU) Medical School, where he also organized the long-running concert and recital series. He has written more than 300 articles for professional publications, including Science and Notes (a journal for musicians). In 1984, NYU started the annual Zoltan Ovary Symposium to celebrate his work and his inspirational role.
