Remembering Mel Dobrin

Melvyn A. Dobrin passed away in February, in his ninety-fifth year, having lived a life dedicated to philanthropy in both Canada and Israel.

Mel played a leadership role in the growth of The Canadian Society for the Weizmann Institute of Science, and his impact was felt on the campus though his support of the Canadian Center for Alternative Energy Research and The Melvyn A. Dobrin Center for Nutrition and Plant Research. He gave generously in spirit as well, carving out
time to serve as a governor and member of the International Board of the Weizmann Institute of Science, and serving as Chairman of the Montreal Chapter for over a decade.
