Due to an editing error, the first name of former faculty member Virgil W. Topazio was listed incorrectly in the "In Memoriam" section of the Spring-Summer 2000 issue.

Robert B. Burton '40, '43M (MD), a member of the medical faculty who pioneered the idea of health maintenance organizations, died April 19. He was 81.

Burton, who was a clinical assistant professor of medicine from 1956 to 1996, is credited with creating one of the first independent physicians' associations in the country in the early 1960s. He led a 1970s federal research effort to study whether his Rochester prototype would work nationally.

The project later became Preferred Care, a Rochester HMO with Burton serving as the first medical director.

Kenneth E. Clark, dean emeritus of the College and professor emeritus of psychology, died June 21 at his home in Naples, Florida. He was 85.

A nationally known psychologist and educator, Clark served as dean of the College from 1963 until 1980. As a scholar, he was one of the nation's foremost authorities on leadership and the qualities that make a leader.

The author of several books, Clark edited the Journal of Applied Psychology for 10 years. He also was president of the American Board in Professional Psychology and the American Psychological Foundation.

After retiring from the University, Clark was elected president of the Center for Creative Leadership, an educational institution devoted to improving management. He was the center's Smith Richardson Senior Scientist at the time of his death.

Richard E. Kobilak '46M (Res), a former assistant professor of urological surgery at Strong Memorial Hospital, died April 21.

Kobilak, who completed his residency in urology at the University, also served as chief of urology at Highland and The Genesee hospitals.

Roland E. Stevens '37M (MD), who led the creation of the Occupational and Environmental Medicine Program at Strong Memorial Hospital, died February 8. He was 88.

A surgeon, Stevens was an expert on occupational medicine, establishing industrial medicine and occupational medicine programs at General Railway Signal Corp., Haloid (later Xerox Corp.), and Wegmans Food before establishing the University program in 1982.
