Dr. Howard Shevrin, 91, of Ann Arbor, Michigan, died on January 18, 2018. Dr. Shevrin completed his undergraduate studies in 1948 at City College of New York. He received his M.A and Ph.D. in Psychology from Cornell University. He received postdoctoral clinical psychology and psychanalytic training at the Menninger Foundation in Topeka Kansas, and worked at the Menninger Foundation as a researcher and Psychoanalyst from 1956 to 1973. He was recruited to the University of Michigan in 1973 as Professor of Psychology and Chief Psychologist in the Department of Psychiatry where he worked until retirement in 2004. He continued his work as Professor Emeritus until his death. 

For more than 60 years, Dr. Shevrin pushed the boundaries between the disciplines of neuroscience and psychoanalysis. In 1968, he published in the journal, Science, the first report of brain responses to unconscious visual stimuli, thus providing strong objective evidence for the existence of the unconscious. He is the author of over 200 published manuscripts, books and book chapters including The Dream Interpreters, a psychoanalytic novel in verse form, which won a Gradiva Award. In 2003, Dr. Shevrin received the Mary S. Sigourney Award, a prestigious international award recognizing outstanding achievements in psychoanalytic research. His work is recognized as having helped form the foundation for a new scientific field known as Neuropsychoanalysis. 

Throughout his career, he was a teacher, mentor and supervisor to numerous students, faculty, staff, residents and postdoctoral fellows. In addition, he collaborated with his wife, Aliza Shevrin, a noted Yiddish translator, to translate 11 Isaac Bashevis Singer and Sholom Aleichem novels, including most recently a retranslation of Tevye the Dairyman which is the basis for the play Fiddler on the Roof.
