  • Notes 
    • 1986-87 ? Robert Hazelwood
      9th Farfel Recipient
      Department of Biology
      Professor of Biology, Faculty Emeritus
      College of Natural Sciences and Mathematics
      Robert Hazelwood was born in Oakland, California, and received his doctorate in comparative physiology from the University of California at Davis in 1958. He worked at both Boston University?s School of Medicine and the University of California at San Francisco?s School of Medicine before arriving at the University of Houston in 1963.
      Dr. Hazelwood?s research focused on certain aspects of diabetes. His research team at the University of Houston worked for a time in collaboration with the Kansas University Medical School, a joint effort that resulted in the discovery of a hitherto unknown hormone produced in the pancreas. Although Dr. Hazelwood is now retired, his influence is readily apparent in the work of his former graduate students, many of whom have attained top positions in industry and academic institutions. These graduate students, says Dr. Hazelwood, were one of the great pleasures of working at the University of Houston. While he misses teaching, he remains busy in retirement, traveling to Thailand during a part of each year?as he has done for the last 14 years?in order to teach at a medical school in Chiang Mai.
      Dr. Hazelwood received many honors during his career at the University of Houston, but the Esther Farfel Award was especially meaningful, he explains, because ?it rewarded excellent work not in just one aspect of academic life, but in all areas: teaching, research, and community service. Receiving the Farfel meant that I was not overspecialized in one area or another, but rather that I was a complete academician. In that sense, it is a very special award.?
    • Robert L. Hazelwood, age 94, of Georgetown, TX, passed away on April 22, 2022. He was born on July 11, 1927 in Oakland, California to Percy and Gertrude (Hanley) Hazelwood. After graduating from St. Joseph?s Notre Dame High School in Alameda, California in 1945, he enlisted in the United States Navy. He was honorably discharged in 1947. Bob received his Bachelor of Science, his Master of Science, and his PhD (1958) in physiology from the University of California in Berkeley. He married Barbara Schultz on August 20, 1955. They had one daughter, AnnaMarie.
      Bob was a professor of physiology at the University of Houston for 35 years. He did a sabbatical in Edinburgh, Scotland for one year. He also did a sabbatical in Thailand for a year. He returned to teach in Thailand for several more years during winter break from the University of Houston. He and Barbara moved to Georgetown in 1996.
      Bob was a philatelist and enjoyed working with stamps from many parts of the world, but his emphasis was Southeast Asia. Bob also enjoyed gardening, both in his yard and in the vegetable garden.
      He is survived by his wife of 66 years, Barbara; his son-in-law, David Huset; and his grandson, Anthony Huset. He was preceded in death by his parents; his two brothers: John and Donald; and his daughter, AnnaMarie.
      A Memorial Mass will be held at 11:00 a.m. on Monday, May 2nd, 2022 at Santa Rosa De Lima Catholic Church, 6571 FM 971, Florence, Texas 76527. Military Honors will be rendered by the United States Navy.
      Mr. Hazelwood will be laid to rest at the Holy Sepulchre Cemetery in Hayward, California.
