In Memoriam Bernard A. Green Ph.D., age 77, of Ferndale, Michigan died June 23, 2015 at his home in Ferndale. Dr. Green was born January 2, 1938 in Brooklyn, New York. He was a graduate of New York City College, and went on to complete his Ph.D. in Psychology at the University of Michigan. Dr. Green joined the faculty at the University of Detroit in 1973, where he was fiercely supportive of his students and teaching, while equally energetic about the field of Psychology. He spent nearly 35 years as a professor at UDM, during most of which he served as Director of the Doctoral Program in Clinical Psychology. He spearheaded the APA accreditation process for the Ph.D. program, which was achieved in 1988. He was highly regarded as a teacher and psychotherapist by the psychological community of Metro Detroit. He was a strong advocate for the Ph.D. program during his years as DCT, and he also provided strong support and encouragement to those who succeeded him. Peggy Stack, Ph.D. noted, “I will always treasure the ‘epic poem’ on the tenure process, that he wrote for Drs. McCown and myself as we reached that milestone.” He retired in 2006. Dr. Green was also a passionate poet who wrote 3 volumes of poetry and short stories. He was a loving father and husband, those who knew him will never forget his kindness, wit, and sense of humor. Dr. Green is survived by his children, Jacob (Ashe) Green, Katherine (Karyn) Green, his granddaughter Alice Green, and his sister Beverly (Paul) Caldwell.

Jesse Bell, Ph.D., supervisor at the University of Detroit Mercy Psychology Clinic and former Internship Director of University Psychiatric Services-Jefferson Ave of Wayne State University School of Medicine, died suddenly on May 31, 2015. He was 61 yrs. old. Dr. Bell was a native of Detroit, graduated from Cass Technical High School and received his undergraduate degree from Eastern Michigan University. He received his Master’s and Doctoral degrees from Columbia University in New York. He returned to Detroit in 1980 and he served on the staff of Lafayette Clinic, where he saw patients, engaged in research and trained and supervised psychology interns until the closure of Lafayette Clinic in 1993. Subsequently, he became director of the APA accredited UPCJefferson predoctoral internship in Clinical Psychology. Cheryl Munday, Ph.D. noted, “Jesse Bell was a dedicated psychologist who touched the lives of many during his professional career. As a hospital staff psychologist, he was a staunch advocate for humane and quality care during a time when public, hospital-based services were sharply curtailed and when Lafayette Clinic was closed. As a fellow internship director, he was a generous and supportive colleague. As a Psychology Clinic supervisor, he was a kind, highly effective teacher whose students felt valued and confident about his commitment to their development. And as I came to learn recently, he was a devoted family man with deep religious faith. No matter the occasion, no matter the task at hand, he was optimistic, yet pragmatic, shrewdly diplomatic and always someone I just enjoyed being around. He will be sorely missed.” Dr. Bell is survived by his wife, Brenda and two daughters Marissa and Allison.
