Annotation by Joshua Lederberg:
Node:  Rittenberg, David.  Professor of Biochemistry at Columbia P&S.
One of very few faculty who encouraged me in research, and personally
very friendly all his life, whenever I encountered him.  He was renowned
pioneer in tracer methodology for metabolic pathways.  He died 1970; I am
disappointed there was no NAS memoir on him; the same might be said for
David Shemin; and Rudolph Schoenheimer did not survive long enough
to be elected to NAS.  See some history in Fruton 1972 book; and comments
about Columbia P&S group by Konrad Bloch, in Ann Rev Biochem, 1987
