Biographical Note

Howard Earle Skipper was born in 1915 in Avon Park, Florida to Chesley Allen and Estelle Wiggins Skipper. He attended the University of Florida and earned a Bachelor of Science degree in 1938 and a Master’s of Science Degree in 1939. He received a Doctor of Philosophy degree in Biochemistry and Nutrition in 1941. From 1941-1945, he served in the U.S. Army’s Chemical Warfare Service and retired with the rank of Lt. Colonial. In 1946, he established the Cancer Chemotherapy Research Program at the Southern Research Institute (SRI). He became head of the SRI’s Organic and Biochemical Division in 1949, Vice President and Director of the Kettering-Meyer Laboratory in 1964, and President in 1974. While at the SRI, he wrote and published over 200 scientific articles and booklets, dubbed “Skipper Booklets” on cancer research. He also served as Professor of Experimental Pathology at the School of Medicine and Professor of Investigative Medicine, Department of Medicine at the University of Alabama in Birmingham. His awards include an Albert Lasker Award for Basic Medical Research in 1975 and an Ernst Bertner Memorial Award from the M. D. Anderson Hospital and Tumor Institute of the University of Texas System Cancer Center in 1976.

In 1940, he married Margaret T. Edwards and remained married until her death in 1984; the couple had two children. Dr. Howard Earle Skipper died in Mountain Brook, Alabama on January 2, 2006 at the age of 90.
