ON THE COVER: Fred Apple. When you think of Dr. Fred Apple, the term troponin immediately comes to mind. An internationally recognized clinical chemist who has traveled the world, Fred has never wandered from Minneapolis, where he took his first job teaching physics (yes, physics) in the local school district. If associating Dr. Apple with physics, rather than clinical chemistry, is hard to imagine, how about the fact that he owes his very existence to hay fever? And how about his link to Robert Frost, Woodstock, the Grateful Dead, and the 1970 March on Washington? If you want to know about the 2 sides of a truly gold coin, read about Dr. Apple in this issue’s Inspiring Minds. (See page 583.) ©Reproduced with permission. Artist, Martin A. Knapp.
