From Steven Stellman: Ernst Wynder, one of the creators of the field of cancer epidemiology, founded and directed the American Health Foundation and was also editor-in-chief of the journal Preventive Medicine for over 25 years. At the invitation of Alfredo Morabia, who took over as editor in 2005, I contributed this personal "remembrance" of my experiences working with this remarkable person.
