Auditorium at' U-M to
hear Professor Fine. The
audience included genera-
tions of students who
know him as a fine scholar
and professor, with a dis-
position to match.
"Professor Fine's 'last
lecture' was a moving tes-
timony to the idealism
which informs both his life
and his study of history,"
said Hillel Director
Michael Brooks. "This,
more than anything else,
may be what so inspires
his students."
Sidney Fine was born in
1920 to Orthodox parents
in Cleveland. His father, a
principal of a prominent
Hebrew school, worked
throughout the Great
Depression, even though
the school could not afford
to pay him.
The Fine family, hardly
well-to-do, nevertheless
invested time and money
in education. Sidney's
brother, Isaac, eventually
became an Orthodox rabbi
in Brooklyn, N.Y.
In fourth grade, young
Sidney decided to become
a history professor. As a
child, he loved reading
and enjoyed attending
Hebrew school five days a
week. He studied Talmud
from kindergarten
through 12th grade.
He graduated summa
cum laude from Western
Reserve University (now
Case Western) in
Cleveland and married
the same year. Shortly
thereafter, the U.S. Navy
sent him overseas. He
served as a translator of
Japanese during World
War II.
He achieved his mas-
ter's degree in absentia
from the University of
Michigan, and later
earned his doctorate in
history, also from U-M.
Upon returning to Ann
Arbor, Dr. Fine began
teaching as an instructor,
but rose in the ranks to
become a full professor in
1959. He has published
nine books.
At the beginning of any
given semester, it is typi-
cal to hear complaints
from U-M students who
registered too late for Dr.
Fine's most popular
course, "U.S. History
Since 1933."
In hopes of gaining
admittance, they attend
his lectures anyway. Many
simply audit the course.
The auditorium is typical-
ly full, which sometimes
forces students to stand at
the back of the hall.
"He liVes, breathes and

feels his subjects," said
student Jared Silverman.
"He truly pumps life into
history."
Students say Dr. Fine is
memorable for more than
his teaching. The bespec-
tacled professor, who loves
cla'ssical music and grand
opera, listens as well as
he lectures, they say.
Many frequent his office
hours to ask for personal

His classes are
always filled.

advice — on jobs, family
and relationships.
"I regard this as part of
my job," he said. "I don't
think of it as deserving of
kudos."
"Professor Fine is much
more than a teacher to his
students," said Mr.
Silverman. "He is a role
model and a friend." ❑
