Bob Dorn at the UC Davis Eichhorn Family House.

May 1, 1921 – Jan. 19, 2013

Dr. Robert Murray Dorn, a longtime clinical professor of psychiatry at UC Davis, has passed away at the age of 91. Dr. Dorn’s lifelong interest in the healthy development of infants led to the establishment of an endowed chair at the university. The Robert M. and Natalie Reid Dorn Endowed Chair on Infancy supports a faculty member conducting research aimed at helping parents and caregivers better meet the needs of infants. This fulfilled a lifelong dream for Robert and Natalie.

Born in Cleveland, Ohio, in 1921 to Karl and Frieda Dworkin, Robert graduated from Western Reserve University School of Medicine, and completed postgraduate work at the University of London. He was a clinical professor at UCLA and Eastern Virginia Medical School in Norfolk, Va. Robert served his country proudly as an Air Force captain in WWII and a U.S. Army captain during the Korean War.

One of the many highlights for Robert, while studying in London, was his collaboration with Anna Freud. Acclaimed in his field for his lifelong study of infancy, he was a published author of many articles and books.

Bob came to Davis in 1980 with his cherished love, Natalie Dorn, to join the UC Davis School of Medicine. Robert and Natalie loved their life in Davis and were often visited by their children, stepchildren and grandchildren. His life was irrevocably changed when his wife and partner, Natalie, passed away in 2004. He is survived by his children, Nancy Ellen Dorn, Robert Murray Dorn Jr., Mary Beth Dorn and Anthony James Dorn, and stepchildren, Dr. Michael Reid, Dr. Linda Donley-Reid and Douglas Reid, as well as many grandchildren and great grandchildren.

A memorial service is arranged for Friday, Jan. 25, 2013, at Putah Creek Lodge on the UC Davis campus, beginning at 2 p.m. Memorial gifts may be made to the UC Davis Foundation to support the Robert M. and Natalie Reid Dorn Endowed Chair on Infancy. Checks may be mailed to the College of Agriculture and Environmental Sciences c/o Christine Schmidt,150 Mrak Hall, One Shields Ave., Davis, CA 95616.
