  1. I met Gail Kligman in Chicago in the ’70s. I had been to Maramureș several times at that point, but my short visits prevented any sort of deep understanding. She was a wonderful, almost hyperactive person, full of energy. Her father, by the way, was the famous Albert Kligman, MD, Ph.D., discoverer of Retin-A and one of the greats in Dermatology (I am a dermatologist by profession, so I was familiar with his articles). We had a good laugh over all that. She shared many stories that were very helpful to me in understanding the world of her research. Her first book, by the way, was on the Caluș traditions of Romania.
