Bernard E. “Barney” Berlinger Sr. W’31, Carversville, Pa., a famous Pennsylvania sportsman and a retired president of Quaker City Gear Works in Huntingdon Valley; Dec. 2. He joined the company in 1934 and served as president for 25 years, until retiring in 1978. He was part of the U.S. decathlon team at the 1928 Olympics in Amsterdam, although he did not receive a medal. At the Penn Relay Carnival in 1929, 1930, and 1931, he set new national records in the decathlon. In 1931 the National Sports Writers Association voted him the outstanding amateur athlete in the nation, and he won the coveted Sullivan Award. Following graduation, the Amateur Athletic Union selected him to represent the United States in a three-month goodwill tour of South Africa: he set six South African records. A pulled muscle prevented him from qualifying for the 1932 Olympic Games in Los Angeles. At the World’s Fair in Chicago in 1933, Barney set a new world’s record for the one-day decathlon. In 1947 he was selected by the U.S. Army as their “coach of coaches,” and flew to occupied Germany to teach a select group of Army officers how to properly coach and train soldiers wanting to compete in track and field athletics during the Allied occupation. In Miami (1950) and in Washington (1951), he set successive world records in distance casting at the National Casting Championships, throwing the 5/8 oz. plug over 260 feet. In 1952 President Eisenhower appointed him special emissary in his People-to-People Sports Program. An avid trap shooter from 1920 onwards, he won numerous club and association championships around the Philadelphia area; his standout performance, in the late 1950s, was a 169-bird run at 16-yard trap targets without a miss. Barney’s preferred avocation became big-game hunting and he traveled throughout the world in search of good kills; he wrote a book of his experiences, Danger Down the Sights, and developed over 50,000 feet of 16mm color film recording his adventures. And he was the founding president of the African Safari Club of Philadelphia. He was the oldest living and senior member, and a past president, of the Porter’s Lake Hunting and Fishing Club of Pike County, having joined it in June 1932. Barney was a member of the inaugural class of Penn’s Sports Hall of Fame. He is survived by his son, Barney Berlinger Jr. ME’60 and his son’s wife, Valerie Vollmer Berlinger CW’72.

Dr. Barbara Bates G’88, Bryn Mawr, Pa., former clinical professor of nursing at the University, who achieved recognition for writing the leading textbook on physical examination and for conceiving and developing the profession of nurse practitioner; Dec. 18. She joined Penn in 1980 as an adjunct professor of nursing, was a lecturer in both nursing and medicine from 1983 to 1994, and served as a clinical professor of nursing, 1994-96. She was also a clinical professor of medicine at the Medical College of Philadelphia and at Hahnemann University. Having practiced as an internist in Greenwich, Conn., Dr. Bates helped form the faculty and programs of the new University of Kentucky College of Medicine. Then she joined the University of Rochester to oversee its education of physicians in ambulatory medicine, and to participate in the Rochester Regional Medical Care Program in Western New York. She traveled throughout rural counties to make newer concepts in medical and health care available. In the late 1960s she helped conceive and develop the then-new role of nurse practitioner, working to improve public access to health care by encouraging greater collaboration between physicians and nurses and expanded practice opportunities for nurses. Her best known book, A Guide to Physical Examination and History Taking, first published in 1974, and continuing under her direction for seven editions, became, and still is, the leading text in its field, published in 11 languages. Her expertise in diagnosis, ability to help novices comprehend the skills of examination and clinical thinking, and influence on improving education for health professionals are probably her most enduring contributions. In 1976, Dr. Bates joined the University of Missouri Medical School at Kansas City, which was inaugurating a program to supply physicians for rural Missouri. An interest in the history of medicine and health care led her to complete a master’s degree in history at Kansas in 1981. She then began research on the history of patients’ experiences of tuberculosis, the leading cause of death at the turn of the 20th century, and at Penn earned a second master’s degree in history: in 1992 she published her award-winning study, Bargaining For Life: A Social History of Tuberculosis, 1876-1938. Dr. Bates was made a fellow of the American College of Physicians in 1970, and a fellow of the College of Physicians of Philadelphia in 1982, and she chaired its medical-history section for some years. In 1984 she received Penn’s School of Nursing Award for Outstanding Contributions to Education, and, in 1993 the American Association for the History of Nursing awarded her the Lavinia L. Dock Award for Historical Scholarship and Research.

Dr. James M. Sprague, Berwyn, Pa., the Joseph Leidy Professor Emeritus of Cell and Developmental Biology at the University; Dec. 22. He joined the faculty in 1950 and remained at the School of Medicine until his retirement in 1983. He received the Lindback Foundation Award for Distinguished Teaching in 1966. He was one of the pioneers in the anatomy, physiology, and function of the brain. In 1953 he co-founded, and later served as director (1973-80) of Penn’s Institute of Neurological Sciences, today a major center for brain studies. He was chair of the old Department of Anatomy, now the Department of Cell and Developmental Biology, 1968 to 1975. Among the many studies he is best known for is his work in the 1960s, discovering what has since been called the Sprague Effect: blindness caused by large cortical lesions can be reversed, and sight restored, by a subsequent lesion in the midbrain. This and other classic research opened up a whole field of inquiry on the structure and function of specific areas of the brain. In 1974 Dr. Sprague received a faculty award from the Josiah Macy Foundation, which enabled him to continue a long-lasting collaboration with the Institute of Physiology of the University of Pisa in Italy; over the years he collaborated extensively with Belgian and Italian colleagues, both before and after retirement. In 1970 he was a member of the founding council of the Society for Neuroscience, and he co-edited the book, Progress in Psychology and Physiological Psychology.

His early publications focused on the intellectual environment of Muslim theological controversies and on the corpus of Ibn Aql and especially his work Al-Wadih; after retirement Dr. Makdisi returned to this text and prepared it for publication in the West. He also convened a series of conferences that brought together American and European research on the medieval Arab-Islamic and Byzantine worlds. In the broader area of medieval studies he insisted, among more Eurocentric colleagues, on the role of Arab-Islamic culture; to this end he contributed The Rise of Colleges (1981) and The Rise of Humanism (1990). His son is Prof. John A. Makdisi L’74, whose wife is June Mary Zekan Makdisi CW’74 GEd’75.
