  • Notes 
    • BADER--Richard A.,90. Brilliant and compassionate doctor and healer, mentor and friend, beloved husband, father and grandfather. Died peacefully at home. He and his identical twin brother Mortimer, the "Bader Twins", graduated first and second in their class from Stuyvesant High School and attended Columbia College on scholarship. Richard was graduated with honors from Columbia University College of Physicians and Surgeons. Sent with his twin brother to the Arctic by the Army during World War II, he co-authored landmark papers on the effects of cold environment on human metabolism. After thawing, Bader worked in the laboratories of Nobel laureates Andre Cournand and Theodore Richards, producing significant papers on the work of breathing. At 24, he began his career at Mount Sinai Hospital, co-founding the hospital's first pulmonary function laboratory and continuing research and publication relating to collagen vascular diseases, basic pulmonary physiology and occupational lung disease, including pioneering work on asbestosis. Re-nowned as both a lecturer and diagnostician, Bader saved countless lives in private practice with his twin brother and also served as associate editor of the American Journal of Medicine and as a clinical professor of medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine. In 1983, The Mount Sinai Alumni presented him the Jacobi Medallion for distinguished achievement in the field of medicine and extraordinary service to Mount Sinai Hospital. In 1989 he became the first Horace W. Goldsmith Professor of Medicine, and in 2004 the Mortimer E. Bader and Richard A. Bader Professorship in Medicine at the Mount Sinai School of Medicine was named for him and his twin brother. His quest for knowledge was insatiable and he rarely read something he didn't remember. He loved humor, books, chess, history, the Yankees, mathematics and, above all, his family. Throughout a busy career, he took time every evening to come home and lecture and quiz his family over the dinner table. He is survived by his wife, Elizabeth; son David; daughter Nancy; son-in-law Nat; and two grandchildren, Eliza and Charlotte.
