Norman Irving Krinsky, a scientist who led the field of carotenoid research to unexplored places, passed away on November 28, 2008, after more than a half century of dedication to research with these plant pigments. Dr Krinsky gave his gift of looking at nature’s yellows, oranges and reds, and discovering the secrets to their importance in our lives. Few research publications on carotenoids will not include a reference to Dr Krinsky’s
work. Born in Michigan’s Upper Penni – sula, Dr Krinsky (or Norman, as he was known to both impressionable
graduate students and professors alike) grew up in Chicago and began his college education at the age of 16 years at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign. At the time, he was not particularly sure of where he wanted to focus his studies. His interests were many and varied. He was not a particularly scholarly student, eceiving his first ‘A’ in psychology.
