Dr. Hyman L. Perlis, who
practiced medicine in Detroit
for 50 years, died Nov. 10, at
age 92. Born in Bialystok, he
came to the United States at
12, without a word of
English. Soon he had both
English and a place in the
sixth grade in Toledo, Ohio.
Academically he was second
in his high school graduating
class, but achieved first place
vicariously by eventually
marrying the valedictorian.
With support from his fam-
ily he went on to graduate in
1919 from the Detroit College
of Medicine and Surgery (the
forerunner of Wayne State
University School of
Medicine), and he led that
class. Later that year he
married Rose Kilstein, his
top-ranking high school
classmate, and gained the
advantage of her love and
good judgment as well as her
After an internship in To-
ledo and a year of post-
graduate training in New
York he returned to Detroit
and became the associate of
Dr. William Donald, a widely
regarded consultant. Before
he bought an automobile he
made house calls by street-
car, carrying his medical bag.
A few years later he opened
his own office, first on 12th
Street, later in the Maccabees
Building; and finally in the
Professional Building. He
was physician to the Protes-
tant Childrens Home and an
examiner for the Metropoli-

tan Life Insurance Company.
His wife was his office assis-
tant from 1940 until her
death in 1968.
His practice was small and
sufficient, but his outlook
was broad, his understanding
of his patients profound, and
his care unceasing. Though a
pessimist in thought, to indi-
viduals .he was unfailingly
friendly, interested, and ac-
cepting. He carried these
traits into retirement in 1972
and to California in 1974
where he lived comfortably
With his sister Anna in a re-
tirement home. Anna died in
1981. But just months before
his own death he found new
happiness, for his son chose
to marry and visits from his
daughter-in-law, his son's be-
loved Anita, brought his
biggest smile. By then he had
only fragments of memory
but his spirit and its expres-
sion did not change.
He was a life member of
the Wayne County Medical
Society and honored for 50
years of service as a physi-
cian by the Michigan State
Medical Society in 1969. He
was a former member of
Temple Beth El and a found-
ing member of Temple Israel.
He leaves his son and
daughter-in-law of Long
Beach, California, two
brothers, Harry of Southfield
and Leo of Kalamazoo, admir-
ing family and friends, and
grateful patients.
