Professor Helen Wendler Deane, a renowned scientist, a humanitarian and a remarkable woman, died July 20, 1966, in her 49th year — a victim of cancer. Dr. Deane was born in North Carolina of Anglo-German stock and reared in New England. From earlier schooling in Springfield, Massachusetts, she entered Wellesley College where she majored in zoology. Her graduate work was done at Brown University, where, in her fourth year, she held the Horton-Hallowell Fellowship given by Wellesley College to an alumna engaged in advanced study. She took her doctoral degree in 1943 and spent the following term as Lecturer in Zoology at McGill University. She joined the Department of Anatomy of the Harvard Medical School in 1944, advancing to assistant professor, 1951–1954, and in 1957 came to the Albert Einstein College of Medicine, Yeshiva University, where she rose to the rank of Professor of Anatomy and Research Associate Professor of Pathology. At the time of her death, she was also Deputy Chairman of the Anatomy Department.
