Back in the 70's, while I attended Marquette University School of Dentistry and graduate school there, as well as during my residence at the old Children's Hospital, I spent many a lunch hour, (and many miles!) running. Early on, while running, I met this skinny Transylvanian guy who never wore socks with his running shoes, even in winter! Bela was 15 years my senior, but I could never keep up with him! He was a great guy, and he taught me a lot about running during those speed workouts around the pond at the Domes!

I'm so very sorry for your loss. Bela was my mentor at Marquette from 1983-1986. He was always so kind and fatherly! He loved teaching and was very good at it. Students liked and enjoyed him. I am not sure what he loved more, science or his noon time run!

As an undergraduate Biology major at Marquette, I had a very crowded schedule. I recognized that I was lacking a course in Physiology. Bela devised an individual readings course on hormones where we met and discussed papers from the literature weekly. Not until I became a faculty member myself, did I appreciate what a generous gift this was.
