Alfred Gilman (sr.)


Alfred Gilman (sr.)

Alfred Gilman (February 5, 1908-January 13, 1984) was an American pharmacologist at Yale University, School of Medicine, later, at Columbia College of Physicians and Surgeons and Albert Einstein College of Medicine. He published the classic textbook "The Pharmacological Basis of Therapeutics" with his colleague Louis S. Goodman in 1941. He was a member of U.S. National Academy of Science.

His father owned a music store in Bridgeport, Connecticut, and he could play almost any musical instrument and frequently did so at neighborhood parties. [ [http://nobelprize.org/nobel_prizes/medicine/laureates/1994/gilman-autobio.html Autobiography of AGG, son of Alfred Gilman.] ] He, however, turned to science, receiving his Ph.D. in Physiological Chemistry from Yale in 1931 for "Chemical and Physiological Investigations on Canine Gastric Secretion". He then joined the faculty of the Department of Pharmacology at the Yale Medical School, where he and Louis S. Goodman, a young M.D., became colleagues and close friends. He is father of Alfred G. Gilman, Nobel winning pharmacologist.

The textbook has been used throughout the world since first publication.
