He contributed a tremendous amount of valuable research in his all-too-brief life, and was not afraid to take an unpopular stance in defense of the profession.

I was privileged to have been in contact with Bill, during his long illness, when he was working diligently on his article, published in Psychiatric Times.1 He will be sorely missed by friends, family and colleagues, and I send my sincere condolences to his family.

Information on Dr Glazer can be found here.
