J.S. and H.R Blumenthal Memorial Lectureship Series

Since 1963 when the lectureship was established, outstanding speakers have presented in the field of allergy and immunology.

This lectureship was established in memory of Doctor Jacob Solomon Blumenthal who went to medical school at the University of Minnesota. After graduation, he received his training in Internal Medicine and became interested in the field of Allergy and Immunology. Upon completion of his training he developed the Allergy Program at the University. He was an outstanding clinician, educator, and researcher. Upon his death, his family and friends established this lectureship to bring individuals outstanding in the field of Allergy and Immunology to the University of Minnesota.

His spouse, Hannah Rachel Blumenthal, was an educator and a supporter of the Allergy program at the University of Minnesota. She was instrumental in establishing this lectureship. Upon her death, it was fitting that this lectureship was renamed the Jacob Solomon and Hanna Rachel Blumenthal Lectureship in Allergy and Immunology.
