Here’s what they have been doing since 1965:
HANNS SEITZ: In 1964/65 I took the postgraduate MPHTM course at Tulane and I graduated in May together with my friend Roy W. Keiser Jr who was on the public health course. After leaving Tulane, I worked as a physician in various hospitals in Germany. I joined the Institute of Tropical Medicine in Tuebingen (Germany) in 1967 and for a couple of months I did some work in Nigeria at an outpost of the institute. By 1979, I was employed as a visiting scientist at the WHO Immunology Research and Training Center in Nairobi, Kenya. I was appointed as director of the Institute for Medical Parasitology at the Medical Faculty University of Bonn (Rheinische Friedrich-Wilhelms-Universitaet) in 1980, where I retired in 2003.
ROY KEISER: After graduation from Tulane University’s Master of Public Health program I joined the engineering section of the Louisiana State Department of Health. During my employment of over 25 years there, I supervised several programs including the first environmental radiation surveillance of food and other products in Louisiana. After completing that program, I worked with my mentor, Mr. Sheldon Hanneman, in occupation health studying health-related problems in chemical plants and other locations. I closed out my career supervising oyster water testing in the coastal waters off of Louisiana. I retired in 1987.
HANNS SEITZ: So we both had to celebrate the 50th anniversary of our graduation. Roy had the marvelous idea to visit me for this occasion here in Germany. We spent two wonderful weeks together refreshing memories about our time at Tulane, remembering the professors who meant so much to us, including Dr. Margret Smith, Dr. Beaver, and Dr. R. Yaeger.
